Great recipe! This pasta is good warm or cold. I marinated about 3 cups of cherry tomatoes that I cut in half lengthwise, cut the olive oil down to 1/4 cup, used 1/4 cup of finely chopped red onion and doubled the amount of fresh basil. I added 1/4 tsp. of red pepper flakes, a bit of sugar to cut the acidity of the tomatoes, and a couple splashes of balsamic vinegar. I let everything marinate along with the garlic, salt and pepper for a few hours at room temp. Boiled some penne pasta then tossed it with the feta and parmesan. This was a meal all in itself, but was a great side dish for some grilled italian marinated chicken.

I really loved this. It was so good I could hardly stop eating! I used Trader Joe's multi-grain flax spiral pasta, and chose to sautee the onion a few minutes. I left the garlic raw, however, as I enjoy that flavor. I added a little more fresh basil and an extra tomato too. I cut down on the oil by 2 TBS, and added two splashes of red wine vinegar. I loved how the feta tasted with all the ingredients. Great recipe!!

This recipe was excellent with fresh garden tomatoes. I rolled and sliced the basil, and added 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes to the tomato mixture. Since this was more tasty the next day, The next time I let the mixture marinade over night in the fridge, heat just to room temp, and then serve over pasta.
