"This fast, fresh-tasting side dish comes very close to a delicious treatment for pasta I enjoyed while in Italy," relates Dorothy Roche from Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin. "You can also serve it with a green salad and toasted garlic bread for a light meal."

"SOOOO simple to make--lets you spend the time you need on the main course. Great flavor combo--my kids devour this. I do not use the mushrooms--other than that I do not have to make any adjustments--good as is written. Very Mediterranean in flavor!"

"Revolting! I thought the combination of ingredients sounded good, but it's terrible - I threw out the leftovers."

"I have made this recipe numerous time for my husband. It is one of his favorites. The only thing I do differently, is I use an 8oz container of feta cheese.

"My husband and I love this recipe. It is easy to prepare and makes a great meal and a great lunch the following day. We do however, choose not to include the mushrooms since neither of us like them, but the recipe was still excellent."
