I like the feta and herbs in this but it was a bit too acidic for me.

This was easy to make and full of flavor. Substituted dry parsley for fresh and left out the olives. My family enjoyed this meatless dish for dinner tonight. Made for Went To The Market tag game

Yummy! This really is refreshing - very light but very flavorful - or flavourful for Nif our Canadian chef. *wink* It's so simple and loved the feta in this. Thanks for yet another winner, Nif. Made by an Unruly Under the Influence for ZWT6.

Can we say fast? The sauce is made and waiting when the penne is cooked. As the last reviewer said it certainly can lend it's self to many translations. I almost salted the sauce before I remembered the feta addition. I'm sure glad that I thought in time. It certainly needs no additional salt. The fresh basil is marvelous.

A very tasty pasta dish which two of us enjoyed for today's lunch and which I plan to use for take-to-work lunches over the next two days. I used 3 cloves of garlic and added a leek, which I thinly sliced, and a tablespoon of lemon juice (added in step 2). I used kalamata olives and low-fat feta. I wanted to add another vegetable, so added one of my favourites which I always have a good supply of in the fridge: baby spinach leaves. Great blend of flavours. This recipe is very versatile so any such additions - depending on what you have on hand - would probably work really well. Loved the blend of herbs in this. Thank you for sharing this recipe, Nif; it's certainly one I'll make again. Made for 1-2-3 Hit Wonders.

A fast and tasty dish. I really liked the feta with this, and I think that goat cheese would be also good with this. I used fresh thyme and parsley, as that was what I had, and also used some basil pesto, since I had no fresh. I think I used somewhat less tomato, as I did not have quite enough, but whatever amount I used was sufficient to create a really nice sauce for the pasta. One would have to tend these ingredients in the pantry, so that this dish can be made when other plans fall through.
