He attracts them with a lush lawn, short commute, and attractive neighbors—promising a lovely, care-free, air-conditioned life.

Over the past few weeks, I have been making the crap out of this quick pasta salad. It has 7 ingredients. I can regularly get 2-4 of them from my yard. Cool, right? So easy, and so good. Here it is. You’re welcome.

Lemon Basil Pasta Salad

Your pasta of choice

5 or 6 oz of Lemon Olive Oil

1 cup fresh basil leaves, chopped

1 cup fresh cilantro, chopped

(If you are a crazy person who doesn’t like cilantro, don’t stop reading.

Just forget the cilantro, and do 2 cups of basil instead. Also, I’m sad for you.)

2 cups of tomatoes, sliced small

8 oz feta cheese crumbles

Juice from 1/2 lemon

Cook the pasta. Rinse it under cold water to cool it down. Add all of the remaining ingredients.

Mix it all together. Chill for about 30 minutes.

Done.
