Pinenut Pasta Salad

This is a great salad. Especially for those who don't really love just salad. It mixes in the pasta so it makes it pretty filling and delicious! This is really yummy served w/ the grilled pork chops!

1 pound pasta, cooked according to the directions on the package (I love to use rotini)
1/2 c. pinenuts, toasted (or you can use almonds if you don't care for the taste of pinenuts)
1/2 red pepper, chopped
1/2 c. parsley, chopped
2 (4oz.) cans sliced olives, drained
1 (6 oz.) package feta cheese, crumbled
3-4 fresh roma tomatoes, chopped (not small, med. size chunks)

1/2 c. olive oil
juice from 1 lemon
2-3 garlic cloves, minced
fresh ground pepper, to taste

Prepare dressing, and salad. Drizzle dressing over salad. Serve chilled or immediately
