Pasta Salad

  • 1 small zucchini, sliced into coins and halved
  • 1 small yellow summer squash, sliced into coins and halved
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 2 medium broccoli crowns, remove excess stems
  • 12 ounces bowtie pasta cooked al dente
  • ½ cup Land O Lakes® Butter with Canola Oil, Use a spoon to scoop out dollops to add to the veggies before grilling.
  • 12 ounces roasted red peppers, chopped
  • ¾ cup feta cheese crumbled


  • ½ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • cup red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1-2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper


  • Preheat the grill to 400° F. and cut/prepare all vegetables. We used a grill pan sprayed with nonstick spray since we had smaller vegetable pieces that could fall through the grill grates.
  • Bring a stockpot of water to a rapid boil and add pasta. Boilfor about 10-12 minutes or until al dente, stirring often.
  • Drain pasta and rinse with cold water; set aside.
  • Season vegetables with salt and pepper. Add dollops of Land O Lakes® Butter with Canola Oil.
  • Grill for about 8-10 minutes, stirring veggies every so often to evenly grill them. Once tender, remove them from the heat.
  • In a large bowl, add drained pasta, grilled veggies, roasted red pepper, and cheese.
  • In a small bowl, stir together all Vinaigrette ingredients.
  • Pour the Vinaigrette over the salad, and stir. Chill for at least one hour to allow flavors to meld.
  • Serve chilled.
