Mediterranean Pasta Salad

My boyfriend, Stephen, is the person who benefits from my love of cooking the most. He generally is not a picky eater... though he is an anti-vegetable, meat-and-potato guy. The greener the vegetable, the less likely he is to eat it. So, I was quite pleased with myself that he ate and actually liked this pasta salad mixed with lots of those dreaded veggies.

Mediterranean Pasta Salad
1/2 lb. Farfalle pasta
1/4 c. balsamic vinegar
2 T. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 tomatoes
1/2 red onion
1 cucumber
1/2 c. kalamata olives
1 c. feta cheese

1/2 c. Italian parsley

Cook and drain pasta. Chop tomatoes, red onion, cucumber and olives. Stir pasta with vegetables, vinegar and oil. Top with feta cheese and chopped parsley.
