Let stand at room temperature.

Cook pasta in large pot of boiling salted water until just tender but still firm to bite. Drain. Return to pot.

Add tomato mixture, olives, and capers. Stir over medium heat until heated through, about 2 minutes. Add feta and stir until melted and creamy, about 2 minutes.

Plate, sprinkle with pine nuts, and serve.
