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

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.

I like a nice, simple bolognes sauce (lean steak mince), with a generous helping of grated cheddar on top.
