    The first time I made this recipe, I loved more than my family. The second time around, I added more tomatoes and a pouch of flaked tuna. It was outstanding! Even my toddlers ate it. A definite keeper!

    This was a great supper for a hot Spring day. Made to recipe using feta. Broke pasta in half, added one more garlic clove. Intense flavors, super-easy, super-quick. Served with spinach/mushroom salad.

    I had originally rated this 4 stars, but I just have to bump it up to 5. We make this regularly and I just can't get enough of the leftovers. Wonderful blend of some of our favorite flavors. And it's super fast and easy to make. The only thing I alter is to use a little less pasta and a little more tomato.

    I always buy the largest bag of spaghetti and just guessed how much a pound would be. Of course, I had way too much. I don't like olives so left them out and used feta cheese and used four med. tomatoes. Delicous, easy and very flavorful. A definite repeat.

    I used garlic/herb flavored Feta. I think mixing chopped cooked broccoli would make it even better. We had broccoli on the side and mixed it in ourselves. Would have made a great one dish meal if it was added with the rest of the ingredients. Also was a little salty. Should rinse the capers and olives first.

    Made this spaghetti recipe several times. It was the perfect way to use up the delicious home-grown tomatoes from our summer garden. Already looking forward to making this again next year. This recipe is a keeper.

    A total winner! Next time I will double the sauce ingredients as suggested in a previous review. You can never have too much of a good thing! I served it with romaine lettuce tossed in lemon garlic dressing, and french bread. What a perfect summer supper!

    Because I am trying to decrease my carbs, I used spaghetti squash instead of pasta. I have to change it a bit for my husband, so no olives, less garlic and capers and I used the asiago cheese as recommended by an earlier reviewer. I'm sure it would have been better with pasta but this was a pretty close second with the squash. I'll do it again!

    I thought 1 pound of pasta was too much for the amount of sauce this recipe makes. I think the next time I make it I will use 3/4 pound and I will use penne instead.

    This is mouth wateringly delicious! Great flavors, I second other reviewers its a little bit too much pasta but besides that its a perfect recipe.

    Quite enjoyed this simple but tasty dish, I read other reviews and added an extra tomato and garlic clove. My son helped me in the kitchen which was an added bonus. I will be making this one again.

    This was good, but not great. It may have helped to put sauce in pasta pan and then add pasta back in pan after draining, and heat - as dish was "luke warm." The heat might have also helped meelet the feta cheese a bit.

    I loved this delicious recipe! It's got a bit of a kick from all the fresh garlic! I used a 12 oz box of whole wheat penne, 6 roma tomatoes, feta cheese and a sprinkle of dried oregano. I didn't have the olives, only the capers, but it was great just the same. I will get olives next time just to see if it adds anything, but this dish definitely stands on it's own. After the pasta was cooked, I did put it back into the hot pan and tossed with olive oil, tomatoes, capers, feta and then sprinkled with seasonings. The dish was cool when we ate it, but the feta had melted a tad and the juicyness of the tomato and olive oil had made a nice sauce. Will be a quick easy staple for my family from now on. Thanks for the great recipe! P.S. The tip to put little Xs on the bottoms of the tomatoes to help you peel them was AWESOME! Will definitely use this in the future.

    Really easy. I added minced fresh basil and used cracked red pepper. It would be even better with garden fresh tomatoes in the summer.
