- Transfer to pot with drained pasta; add olives, feta cheese and basil; toss gently to mix.

Had to add more olive oil and garlic. I still couldn't get much flavor so added a jar of marinated artichokes. Won't make again. I had to redo the whole recipe in order to take to a brunch
This was great, thanks for sharing. I added grilled chicken and white kidney beans just to up the protein and threw in a can of diced tomatoes and their juice. I'll definitely make this again.
