    1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook pasta in boiling water until al dente-about 8-9 minutes; drain.

    3. Reduce heat to medium, stir in pasta and feta cheese, and cook until heated through.

    I have been making this recipe for many years now and it still remains my all time favorite! One thing I can't stress MUST use a GOOD quality feta. The kind you get in a grocery store just doesn't have enough flavor. I'm lucky enough to have a Greek deli nearby that offers excellent feta. I also double the amount of spinach and always add extra garlic and red pepper flakes. If you'd like it a bit more hearty, try adding chicken tenderloins, cut up and sauteed.  -  17 Oct 2000  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    OH MY GOODNESS!!!!! This was such a delicious and easy recipe. I only used half the feta b/c my husband doesn't really care for it, but without knowing what was in it, he agreed it was was good so next time I will use the whole amount of feta. I also used extra spinach and next time will use a little more. I literally threw this together in no time and then added some medium shrimp during the last few minutes. LOVED, LOVED, LOVED THIS MEAL!!!  -  17 Nov 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
