Artichoke, Olive & Feta Pasta Salad

This is my nod to desiring spring to be here soon.  Looking for light and fun things to make that will help along a warmer season.  I know that it isn't spring yet because there is still snow on the ground and it is much colder outside than you would think by looking at the sun shining.

 Fortunately, there are signs of spring.  We have been noticing a greater number of bunnies and squirrels out on our patio.  We were even able to recycle some left over waffles to a rather large little bunny.  Fun Saturday morning! 
This recipe is great recipe for lunches during the work week.  Just make on Sunday, portion out into small serving storage containers and grab and go each day on the way out the door.
