An easy-breezy Greek Pasta Salad is a crowd-pleaser! Bring it to any event this summer; it will disappear soon. This version contains a mix of cherry tomatoes, kalamata olives, onions, onion sprouts, and feta cheese for a colorful bowl! Who doesn’t like Greek salad? And who doesn’t like pasta? Right?

Some other times they add goat cheese or olives to the ratatouille. A pretty polyvalent dish! This ancient 18th-century French dish is usually served as a side dish to meat or fish. Usually made in a casserole, this…
