Whole Wheat, Feta, Pecan, Pasta Salad

Ingredients:

8 oz. Mrs. Miller's Whole Wheat Noodles
1/2 cup coarsely chopped pecans*

1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese

3 Tbsp. olive oil
3 Tbsp. red wine vinegar
1 clove garlic, minced (about 1/2 tsp.)

Salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

Cook Noodles according to package directions. Rinse with cold water and drain. In a dry sauté pan, toast the pecans on medium-high heat until they are fragrant, about two minutes. Set aside to cool. *You may use walnuts instead of pecans if desired.

Toss feta cheese, red onion, and spinach with the Noodles along with the cooled pecans.

Next mix together olive oil, red wine vinegar, garlic, mustard, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Then pour over noodle mixture and toss until well coated. Refrigerate.
