Tomato-Feta Bow Ties
"This is an easy variation on a spaghetti recipe," writes Ryan Wilcox of Rochester, Minnesota. "It can be used as a side dish, or as an entree when combined with cooked chicken or shrimp."

This is a very tasty dish, but 1 cup of bow tie pasta is not nearly enough for 4 servings...I will use at least 2 c. of uncooked bow ties when I make it again...there is plenty of sauce for that amount of pasta.
