  • Reviews

  • “This is an easy, yet elegant dish. The feta cheese and garlic make a great combination with the cherry tomatoes and olives. A great meal for those hot days, like here in Florida, when a heavy sauce is just too much. As far as olives, I used ripe, black ones. The leftovers were great served cold!”

  • “This was delish! I had so many cherry tomatoes left on my plants and happened to have a container of feta cheese, so it was the perfect recipe! I had it both hot and leftover cold for lunch the next day and really preferred it hot. Wonderful taste and so easy to prepare.”

  • “Excellent!I made this for dinner tonight along with a green salad and broiled salmon. My husband loved the dish and requested that I make it “often.” It is also delicious cold and would make a wonderful potluck dish. Next time I may add some toasted pinenuts to the top. Definitely a keeper!”

  • “Simple and filling. I would have liked a little more garlic but besides that, everything was great. Will be a great standard when I want pasta without the heavy sauce.”
