simple, quick, very tasty. Makes a great side dish. My proportions were probably a little off - used more cherry tomatoes (garden is producing them like crazy). Since I was cutting to make about a double portion (had the cooked pasta in the freezer) I left out the garlic, but did use basil flavored EVOO and plain feta (had it).
Pasta with Cherry Tomatoes, Olives, and Feta
This recipe is even quicker if you use leftover cooked pasta. You'll need about 6 cups. Place the pasta in a colander; allow hot water to run over pasta to knock off the chill. Drain well. Proceed with the recipe as directed.
