Fresh veggies and flavorful feta cheese make this Mediterranean-inspired pasta dish big on flavor and short on prep time. 

How to Make It

Step 1

In a 4- to 5-quart pan over high heat, bring 2 quarts water to a boil. Add pasta and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender to bite, about 10 minutes. Drain.

Step 2

Meanwhile, rinse, core, seed, and chop tomatoes. In a large bowl, mix tomatoes, basil, 1/2 cup feta, garlic, and olive oil. Add hot cooked pasta and mix well. Add salt and pepper to taste. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup feta.

Was easy to make and flavorful! I used the pasta I had on hand which was whole wheat pasta (shells) and dried basil instead of fresh. I took the advice of others and used a tbsp of balsamic vinegar which added that extra zip. Without it, it tastes like something was missing. Was delish and will make it again!

This was delicious with a few tweaks. I used whole wheat pasta, yellow heirloom pear tomatoes, which I quartered, 2 tbsp. oil, 1 tbsp. of balsamic, I skipped the garlic and added 2 oz. of mini turkey pepperoni, some fresh oregano and a pinch of red pepper flakes. Very fresh tasting and satisfying.

This was easy and delicious with our own basil and tomatoes. I don't like raw garlic, so went very light with Penzey's freeze-dried garlic, which is mild. Made half the recipe and added a tablespoon of balsamic vinegar. This will be even better when our heirloom tomatoes come in.

We made this last night with whole wheat pasta for a quick week-night dinner. It was easy and delicious, but we found the garlic overpowering (hence the 3 stars). We will definitely make this again, although we'll cut the garlic down to 1 clove.
