This recipe has remained at the top of our Family Favorites list for several years and continues to also be loved by others we share it with. Every couple months we get to craving Krissy Doodle's Noodles and I have to make up another batch.
Original post (June 2010):
My aunt is a talented cook and she made up this recipe herself. Since she gave my mom the recipe several years ago, it has become a family favorite and has made a big hit with others as well. Even people who don't normally enjoy such things as green olives (like me) or feta cheese generally love this combination somehow. It has such a pretty presentation, too. It's one of my more expensive recipes, so I am not able to make it very often, but when I do we thoroughly enjoy it!
Krissy Doodle's Noodles
Cook 1 pkg. (12-16 oz) multi-colored spiral pasta (the colors make it fun, but it is just as tasty with non-colored) and allow to cool.
Mix all below ingredients with the cooled pasta:
1 pkg. cherry tomatoes, quartered (or I often just dice up regular tomatoes to taste)
1/2 onion, diced very thinly (sweet or bermuda, if possible)
7 oz. (or less) pimento stuffed green olives, sliced
6 oz. feta cheese, crumbled (with tomato and basil if available)
2 Tb. olive oil
2 Tb. canola oil
1 T. vinegar (my aunt prefers red wine with garlic)
1/2 tsp. mustard
1/2 tsp. garlic salt
2 Tb. quality Blue cheese dressing, like Litehouse or Marzetti's--or make your own from this recipe.
Fresh basil and parsley, if available
