March 22, 2011
Get a taste of summer in every bite of this delicious pasta recipe. Our thanks to Melissa Damon for her submission

Your taste buds will love the bright citrus taste of this pasta dish, balanced with the tanginess that only feta cheese can deliver. Melissa Damon of Mount Airy, Maryland submitted this recipe, which can be prepared at home or at your favorite KOA.

“I put mine in a gallon Ziploc bag and serve with lunch, dinner or as a snack during our 6-day annual camping trip,” she says. “It’s very refreshing and healthy during the hot summer months. Hope you enjoy!”


3/4 box of angel hair pasta
drizzle of olive oil
1 lemon
1 cup feta cheese
1 small can diced black olives
2 cups halved cherry or grape tomatoes
2 Tbsp chopped fresh thyme


Cook pasta accordingly then rinse in cold water & drain. Drizzle with olive oil to keep from sticking and toss. In large bowl, add olives, cheese, tomatoes. Cut lemon in half and squeeze juice into bowl and stir gently. Add cooked noodles and feta cheese. Toss noodles in lemon mixture. Serve cold.

    Well, here it is. we are going into April and we are looking forward to April 12th. We will be leaving our Missouri home, head to Dallas and spend a couple of days with our son,daughter-in-law and beautiful granddaughter. Next, it’s off to Carlsbad, N.M. where we will stay again at the Carlsbad K.O.A. Next stop, Benson, AZ K.O.A. with the Kim family. After that, we drive to Alpine,California (sorry, no K.O.A. there) where we stay on a beautiful Indian reservation. After that, on to Yosemite. Yep, we will be there. Travel to Petaluma California. You guessed it, K.O.A. From there it is anybodies guess. We have a 1996 22 foot Hi-Lo that we pull with our 2001 Toyota Tacoma with 130,000 on it. How do we like K.O.A.? What do you think?

    Good morning. Great recipe! We will try it! Maybe I am just computer illiterate but is it possible to make the recipe a printable item without having to print the whole email. Sorry to complain! Hopefully spring will spring pretty soon. We had another winter storm ravage us here in central new york yesterday. BLAH!!!!!
