    I would like it with a little less pasta, or maybe smaller pasta...the bowties I used seemed huge. But it was still delicious and the dressing was yummy. Oh and it makes a lot.

    Came out delicious! For other lazy cooks, I was lazy and didn’t feel like making the vinegrette from scratch so I bought Ken’s Steakhouse Simply Vinegrette, Greek flavor and used about 1/4 of the bottle (this lightly coated the pasta, just add more if you want). Still came out very good for skimping on the recipe!

    Great! Very fresh. I cheated and used a bottled lemon basil dressing from the refrigerated section of the market.

    Love, love, love this recipe!! Have made it about 20+ times. Kids love it, their friends love it and it’s often requested at gatherings. I make it often for lunches for the week. Only recommendation is to use fresh feta not the crumbles.

    I loved this recipe! I used a little bit of Newman’s Own garlic and olive oil vinaigrette. Added a bit more flavor!

    This was fantastic! My husband proclaimed it to be the best he’s ever had. I used a pound of bow ties and did 1 1/2 times the dressing. No other alterations to the recipe.

    Love the dressing. This was yummly without any modifications but I've added chick peas for some protein.
