I whipped up this pasta dish to satisfy a craving for olives and feta cheese. Add artichokes or spinach for variation.

STRONGLY recommend substituting artichoke hearts for the zucchini! We got one small jar of the marinated artichoke hearts and one can of plain ones (cheaper) then mixed them together...there was definitely enough marinade from the small jar to completely soak the regular ones as well as the entire dish! I can't imagine this dish without the artichoke flavoring- it made it! my picky bf loved it as much- if not more- than me. we used lots of pasta and it lasted several meals. YUM! Read More

Wow... Loved it! I made this with a few adjustments: I substituted red and green bell pepper for the zucchini and just left out the olives since I didn't have them. It was good the first day but got better as it sat in the fridge; reheated in the micro... This was a flavorful and healthy dish. Read More

Has the potential to be out of this world but it needs WAY more feta and olives. Read More
