My wife makes an awsome Mediterranean pasta salad with peppers, olives, feta, tomotoes, and pine nuts. OMG! It's good.

Fried garlic taste so find it very strange

Usually my pasta is with "stuff". Any leftovers, frozen foods and/or canned foods i happen to have on hand. Not really a recipe but more of a state of mind :p

When making pasta intentionally i usually either do a proper bolognese with stewed meat, carrots and tomatoes or go really simple with an aglio e olio, just lightly fried garlic with good olive oil :)

Ooh lightly fried garlic sounds very good! My son just developed a taste for garlic and asked for it in green beans. (Hooray! Kitchen skills for the win.)

When looking for good olive oil, do you prefer a particular region? I've leaned towards the spicier/harsher Greek olive oils, but everyone has their favorites.
By "good" I mean any you would like raw :) Personally I'm Portuguese so I tend to the Portuguese olive oils (mainly out of convenience) but whatever suits your fancy

I like to stir olives; big handfuls of spinach; sundried tomato sausages from Trader Joes; mayonnaise; and a handful of feta into my pasta. Technically, I'm off dairy, but that's my cheat day food. :)
Is that a dish best served cold?

I never thought of it as a cold pasta salad- I do mine with fusilli as a warm mac' n cheese.
Just wondering since mayo would "melt" in a warm dish.
