Lemon Feta Pasta with Grilled Vegetables

Its summer people!  That means a few things on the food front.... salads, things on the barbecue and 'lighter' flavours all around.  But sometimes I miss pasta so I came up with a bit of a combination of summery cooking with the satisfaction of a bowl of spaghetti.  Grilled veggies, bright lemon and salty feta... the result a bowl of yumminess!

On another sad note - for me anyway... I'm pretty sure the interior trip I had planned for this weekend is off.  Algonquin Park is under a complete fire ban - interior and car camping.  Not that the ability to have a fire determines my trip but its a nice to have.  I'm a bit disappointed as I was really looking forward to some isolation this weekend... but not to worry there is still a ton of fun to be had!
