Wonderful - fast and tasty!! I did do a few things differently. I had to double the recipe to feed everyone so I sauted the garlic with some chopped onion in the olive oil until soft. I then added 1 can of low fat chicken broth, a little white wine and both sun-dried tomatoes and some chopped Roma tomatoes and let this simmer while the pasta cooked. The smell was unbelievable! I used fresh basil and tossed in some sliced olives. Tossed all together, and then gently stirred in the cheeses at the last. My son said it was a gourmet meal! We might try throwing in some shrimp or chicken strips next time, although with a salad and some french bread, its a complete, wonderful meal. Thank you for sharing!!-22 Aug 2003
This is one of my favorite recipes, and it works well reheated also. I like to buy sundried tomatoes in oil because they are soft and easy to cut with kitchen scissors. I substitute the leftover oil for the olive oil in the recipe, and sometimes use less than 1/4 cup to keep it from being too oily. The tomatoes are the best part, so I usually put extra! Such a great combination of flavors....-25 Nov 2005
Definently quick and easy! Didn't have a problem mixing - I mixed everything but the cheeses together and then mixed those in last. 4 *'s. UPDATE: Made this again and modified quite a few things, this time I'm giving it 5 *'s because it was delicious. By idea and suggestion of a few other users I sauteed garlic, onion, tomato, basil, and olives in a little bit of olive oil before adding to the pasta. I then added the feta and stirred. The only other things I added were salt and pepper. I did sprinkle parmesan on one serving and none the next - I liked it better without. My 2 yr old liked it, my 5 yr old didn't want to try it but I think he was already full from pre-dinner snacking.-09 Jul 2002
