"Out of all our recipes for pasta, this simple meatless main dish is our favorite," writes Christa and Holley Hageman from Telford, Pennsylvania. "We can hardly wait for summer to arrive so we can use our garden-fresh tomatoes and minced basil in this recipe." The entree's Mediterranean flair comes from feta cheese, oregano, olive oil and lemon.
