    Dedee Royale's Note:

    Here's an easy dish that always gets compliments. The feta cheese and pine nuts give this pasta its Greek nature. I've reduced the fat by mixing in fat-free cottage cheese.

      Delightful dish! It definitely had a Mediterranean touch and I loved the pine nuts. And it's so easy to prepare, too. I will definitely make this again. Thank you for sharing your recipe, Dedee Royale. Made for Spring 2013 Pick-A-Chef.

      Very good, very simple. I used baby spinach leaves, simply mixing them in and letting them cook, and a lovely soft feta that I get from a local market. The pine nuts are always a lovely addition, and overall, this is a fresh and tasty pasta dish that is sure to get compliments, we really enjoyed it. Thanks Dedee, made for PAC Fall 2011
