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.

How to Make It

Step 1

Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt and fat; drain well. Toss pasta with olive oil.

Step 2

Fold in tomato and next 4 ingredients. Sprinkle with basil.

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).

Ultra easy to make but very tasty. I used a mixture of yellow and red local cherry tomatoes for extra color. Highly recommended!

Used bow tie pasta; added chickpeas and extra garlic for a little more oomph and a couple tablespoons of parsley along with the basil. Very quick, easy, and tasty for a weeknight

So delicious and easy to make using many ingredients I had in my kitchen! My three toddlers even loved the meal.
