This is a family favorite. I use a whole container of feta, the more cheese the better.

Delicious, presents nice and easy to make. I used a bit more pasta and feta cheese the first time I made it, next time I think I'm also going to add more onion (1/2 to 1 whole) and cut it into long slices as opposed to chopping it, so it is more prominent.

This was excellent. I used a little more pasta, and increased the feta to about 1 full cup. Even my husband, who generally doesn't like feta and Greek olives, really enjoyed.
