You might be familiar with warm pasta tosses that go easy on the pasta and heavy on the vegetables, but wait till you try this fresher, lighter salad riff on that idea. A mere four ounces of pasta (lentil pasta for extra protein and fiber) is combined with loads of salad greens for a dish that’s a cross between tossed salad and pasta salad. An oregano-bolstered vinaigrette and tangy feta cheese add a little Greek flair for good measure.
