Bow Tie Pasta Salad with Artichoke Hearts and Feta

  • Print

Here's a wonderful summer pasta salad that has a few unexpected ingredients that will have your guests raving!  Oh, and it's healthy too :-)


  • Bow Tie Pasta (Farfalle)
  • Ken's Steak House Lite Olive Oil Vinaigrette Salad Dressing
  • Artichoke Hearts
  • Black Beans
  • 1 Red Bell Pepper
  • 1 Yellow Bell Pepper
  • 1 Orange Bell Pepper
  • Feta Cheese (in brine for best flavor)


  • Boil water, place in box of bow tie pasta
  • Cook pasta 8-10 minutes, keeping the noodles al dente
  • While pasta is cooking, chop all your bell peppers

  • Drain and rinse black beans, set aside

  • Drain Artichoke hearts in can, cut into quarters, set aside
  • Drain pasta in colander, rinse with cool water, let sit about 15-20 minutes to cool & dry
  • Once pasta is cool and dry to the touch (a bit tacky), pour into a large bowl
  • Add as much of the Ken's dressing as you like (for one box of pasta, I use about 2/3 of the bottle)
  • Toss in your black beans, chopped peppers, and artichoke hearts
  • Crumble feta with hands
  • Give everything a final toss

  • Place in refrigerator to cool until ready to serve!
