Simple delicious pasta dish that was on the table in under 30 minutes! Clean-up was also a breeze. The kids also loved it and no one complained about there not being any meat! And there is enough leftover for my lunch tomorrow. Wow! another winner recipe that we will be having often. The only subsitutions I made in the is recipe is that I used low-sodium products and since I didn't have any Italian seasoning I used the same amount of oregano instead.

I love meatless pasta dishes and this one was fabulous. Very simple to make and totally carbo-licious. I used garbanzos because that is what I had. Next time will try with kidney beans. Pleasantly seasoned and my meat-lover husband even liked it. Thank-you MizzNezz.

So wonderful! I followed the recipe to the letter except significantly increasing the garlic, adding some crushed red pepper and using garbanzo's. 3 & 5 year old loved...as did I! I only added a small bit of spinach to the main dish and put most of it in my own bowl and then tossed with the hot pasta and sauce to wilt it to ensure the kids would eat it. SO good! The kids were fighting for the feta chunks. Who knew?

Excellent pasta. i halved the recipe, but still used all the beans. I cooked the pasta in the sauce so I added some chicken broth. It turned out absolutely delicious. I also subbed herbes de provence and regular goat cheese, because I couldn't find feta. Again, great recipe. Really great one pot meal for a college student. Thanks!

This is basically how I make a sauce, too, but I never added the olives and feta to it before! Great way to get some extra fiber and veggies into the sauce. Roxygirl

Oh, YUM!! Thank you so much for posting this, MizzNezz! It was so incredibly easy to make -- and the directions were right on the money! Seasonings were perfect, and the only thing I regret is that I did not have any feta cheese or black olives on hand...I substituted grated parmesan cheese, which was really good in this recipe! Next time I make this (SOON), I am going to make it a point to get feta cheese and black olives, because I think that would enhance this recipe even more (if that's possible)! This is a real keeper, and one to go into my regular rotation as well as kept for special company! TY!!! :)
