Greek Ziti

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Starrynews

I saw this recipe on Yahoo!Foods and modified it a bit for our tastes. It's kind of like a fancier macaroni and cheese, using the great feta cheese sauce.

I enjoyed this extremely easy recipe for my lunch today. It's fresh tasting and plates beautifully. I had a little bit of trouble deciding how to rate this because I made some modifications. I used No Chicken Broth (vegetarian broth) and Gardein "chicken" strips (vegetarian) for the chicken. With my modifications, I would give this a 4. However, I know that using real meat and chicken broth would have lent more flavor and it was me who altered the recipe from its true intention, which would likely be a 5. I was also thinking kalamata olives would be nice in this and then saw it was suggested by several other people. I think I will add them to my leftovers! Thanks for a quick, tasty lunch, Starry! Made for ZWT9.
