I'm giving this recipe 4 stars when it's made as written. It's good and very nutritious, but it's a little bland. However, the second time I made it I used two 15 ounce cans of diced tomatoes with basil, garlic, and oregano, and that gave the dish the flavor kick that it needed. With that change, I might give this recipe 5 stars. Read More

This meal was boring and tasteless. Had I known sooner I would have been prepared with some basil pesto and plenty of Parmesan cheese to liven it up with. Also the addition of 1 Tbls. garlic salt would be an improvement. Read More

I'd make this for company. I combined this recipe with the instructions for "Suki's spinach and feta pasta" which is almost the same recipe. I used a 6 oz. bag of baby spinach that I washed & chopped & also used whole wheat penne. I sauteed the garlic for just a little while 1st. I added salt & pepper & also added 1/2 a pound of defrosted shrimp, just to warm it up, before adding the pasta & feta cheese (I happened to have plain feta in the frig). If you keep stirring the mixture at the end, the feta melts & the sauce gets an orangy, creamy texture. I also put red pepper flakes on the table, if someone wanted even more zip. I'll try 3/4 of a cup of feta next time as my husband thought the feta had a strong taste, although I loved it & we finished the whole dish. Read More

I tried this recipe this week. It was amazing. Made a few changes. Added a few more cloves of garlic some balsamic vinegar and thyme to the tomatoe/spinach mixture. Grilled up some chicken breast and cut it up in there. It was amazing and I will definitely make it again. Read More

My family loved the blend of flavors in this recipe. I added some pine nuts as suggested by another reviewer and we enjoyed the new texture it added to the other ingredients. We will make this again and again. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

Great dish but I changed some of the amounts. I used twice as much pasta one 14.5 oz. can of chopped tomatoes with onions and only about 3 oz. of feta. I really liked the taste. I'm not sure I would use the entire 8 oz. of feta even if I had it because mine was salty enough. Next time I won't drain my tomatoes as the dish was a bit dry (but I did double the pasta so I don't know what I expected!). I love pasta but I was getting tired of the same old tomato sauce- this will definitely become a staple in my house. Read More
