Whole Wheat pasta salad with feta and walnut


  • 1 bag Luigi Vitelli Whole Wheat Pasta
  • 1/2 cup walnuts
  • 1 cup feta cheese, crumbled or diced.
  • 1 red onion, diced
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped baby spinach leaves
  • 2 tablespoons walnut oil (or extra virgin olive oil)
  • 2 tablespoons ShopRite red wine vinegar
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard

  1. Cook the pasta according to the directions on the package. Drain the pasta, rinse it under cold water, and put it in the refrigerator to chill.
  2. In a dry sauté pan toast the walnuts over a medium-high flame until they are fragrant, about 2 minutes. Set the walnuts aside to cool then chop them coarsely.
  3. In a large bowl, toss together the chilled pasta, walnuts, feta cheese, onion, and spinach. In a small bowl whisk the oil, vinegar, garlic and mustard. Pour the dressing over the pasta salad and toss to combine. Season with salt and pepper.
