About this recipe: A really simple, almost rustic, ever popular Greek dish for kids and adults, esp in their lunch boxes. Penne pasta is tossed with tomatoes, cucumbers, green peppers and black olives, then dressed in lemon juice and olive oil.

Quick, simple and delicious. I did add some red chillies. - 31 Aug 2010
I love this recipe...although I've made a few slight changes to it. I use spiral pasta (tri-colored if available) and add 8 oz. feta cheese. It's best to get the block kind of feta and break it up into big chunks b/c when you mix the whole salad, it'll break up the feta. Already crumbled feta breaks down too much. Also, try olive oil instead of veggie oil and 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar instead of lemon juice or half the lemon juice and a little red wine vinegar. I sometimes sprinkle garlic salt instead of regular and a little oregano. - 04 Sep 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
