Greek Pasta Dishes
Greece's most popular pasta is orzo, a rice-shaped dried noodle that is easy to find and fun to combine in Greek preparations. Salads and sides work beautifully with this pasta as their bases.
Piquant kalamata olives, rich, tangy feta cheese, and oregano give this super-creamy macaroni and cheese just enough Greek flavor to take it out of the ordinary. Feta cheese, because it is cured and stored in brine, is sometimes called a "pickled cheese."
