Yield
8 servings (serving size: about 1 1/3 cups)

Pungent cheese, sharp olives, fruity olive oil, and briny capers give this no-cook pasta sauce tons of flavor.

How to Make It

Step 1

Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt and fat. Drain.

Step 2

Combine tomato and remaining ingredients in a large bowl. Add pasta, and toss well to combine. Serve immediately.

Step 3

Tip: Quickly peel tomatoes by plunging them into the boiling pasta water (before adding the pasta) for 20 seconds; remove with a slotted spoon, and quickly rinse under cold water. The skins will slip right off.

This recipe has so many great things going for it, it's definitely a winner. Lively flavors, simple ingredient list, quick and easy prep, cooking and clean-up, with the ability to cook and prepare all in one pot. What's not to love?! Can be easily halved. Made recipe exactly as is, needs no alteration.

I subbed out the pasta for spaghetti squash and added some mild Italian sausage. I loved it. Husband hated it. But I get to write the review, so there. I really enjoyed the Mediterranean flavors. All around great recipe.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.
