    Something else. This recipe is so quick and easy, but that does not prevent this from being a very very tasty dish. Toast the pine nuts for about 4 minutes, and add them just before serving. Toasting really enhances the flavour of the nuts. If you like salt a lot, add capers. Use wild capers, if you can find them.  -  21 Jul 2008


    Altered ingredient amounts. I doubled the amount of olives and feta for this recipe. It was delicious and SO easy!  -  21 Jul 2008


    Altered ingredient amounts. This recipe is amazing! I served it warm, and did double the feta and olives, and used less pasta. it was even better cold the next day.  -  21 Jul 2008
