    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350°; bring 6 quarts of salted water to a boil; add in macaroni and cook, stirring occasionally, 8-10 minutes until al dente; drain and place in a large bowl.
    2. 2
      To blanch the spinach: bring 4 quarts salted water to a simmer over med-high heat; have ready a large bowl of ice water and a slotted spoon; add spinach to simmering water (in three or 4 batches) and submerge it.
    3. 3
      Let cook about 15 seconds, remove with the slotted spoon, and plunge into the ice water; let spinach cool completely, drain it, and squeeze out the excess water; if the leaves are large, chop them into bite-sized pieces; set aside.
    4. 4
      In a blender or food processor, puree the feta cheese with the milk, lemon juice, olive oil, salt, and pepper (blend in two batches, if needed); this will not be completely smooth; there will be very small chunks of cheese remaining.
    5. 5
      Stir the cheese mixture into the cooked macaroni; then add the minced rosemary and thyme, garlic, red pepper flakes, olives, cherry tomatoes, and blanched spinach.
    6. 6
      Transfer mixture to a 13x9 inch baking dish; sprinkle with parmesan cheese and the mixed herbs.
    7. 7
      Bake on the middle shelf 25-30 minutes until the pasta is heated through and the top is slightly browned.

      I made this fabulous dish for the first time tonight. I halved the recipe and two of us ate only 1/3 of it so it goes a very long way and could feed a crowd.I followed the recipe fairly carefully though I did add some dried oregano, as well. So amazing! I'll make it again. And yet again.

      Outstanding! I simplified, cut down on the amount of olive oil and number of ingredients to get the creamy dish I wanted. Also, used oregano instead of the other herbs and added more garlic. This recipe adaptable, based on taste/what you've got on hand - and isn't that the definition of a really good recipe?

      I followed the recipe exactly as is and added oregano. I used a lasagna pan and it turned out perfect! This is a great recipe to make ahead and freeze.
