Got this out of Pillsbury's Fast and Healthy Cookbook. I often double this recipe - and still no leftovers! You can tweak this recipe, adding/swapping different ingredients, such as cherry tomatoes, extra feta, or even making it more veggie than pasta. The possibilities are endless. Make it your own!
