This dish was very easy to make and fresh. My friends and I enjoyed it a lot. I changed the zucchini to champignons and used green olives as we didn't have any black ones and this was very yummy, too.

This was a great, fresh recipe! I added extra feta as well as a can of organic diced tomatoes with oregeno seasoning. Very good dish for my toddler!

Great recipe! My daughters and I really enjoyed this pasta dish. We used gluten-free pasta and baby grape tomatoes (we left them whole). I used about double the feta cheese as my daughters adore it. I'm not sure how many olives to use as they weren't listed in the ingredient I figured this was just to your own preference/liking. Great flavours and I really liked the capsicum and zucchini. Probably next time I'll use the whole capsiucms and double the amount of zucchini. Fantastic dinner for a quick meal or a hot summers night. Just 15 minutes from starting the preparation to completion of the meal. Thanks for a great recip...we'll definitely make this one again. Photo also being posted. :)
