    breezermom's Note:

    The warm side dish delivers strong feta and olive flavors while red pepper flakes add a little spice. Sometimes I add some diced red bell pepper to add color, but I really prefer it without the red bell pepper. The original idea for this recipe came from a recipe on AllRecipes, but I've added some things and made others optional.

      We really enjoyed this! Easy to make, wonderful flavor, what else can you ask for? I made exactly as written, except that I increased the garlic, as I LOVE garlic. A wonderful dish, and I love that it has both the vegetable and the starch in one dish. I'll definitely be making this again! Thanks for posting.

      Another HEALTHY recipe! The only swap I did, was replace the pasta with Quinoa because it's higher in protein and healthier than poisonous pasta. I love that there was broccoli in this. I used a vegan parmesan. Excellent. Will make this again!
