Penne with Feta and Lemon

This one is from the Michelle Bridges "Crunchtime" book - it's a bit higher in the calories, and she suggests it as a lunch meal on a day you do a lot of exercise.  It comes in at 440 calories, so it is a bit higher - but it is a really easy and tasty dish!

Ingredients (serves 2)
2 cups penne pasta
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons olive oil
60g low-fat feta, crumbled
1 tablespoon pine nuts, toasted
1 tablespoon chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

Cook pasta in boiling water for 15-20 minutes.  Meanwhile combine lemon zest, juice and olive oil in a jar and shake.  Place cooked penne in serving bowl, crumble fetta over the top and toss with pine nuts, parsley and the lemon dressing.  Serve immediately.
