Add lemon juice and remaining 2 TBSP olive oil to skillet. Add cooked pasta, tossing thoroughly with other ingredients. Mix in feta cheese and additional salt & pepper to taste.
yummy! i love me some feta cheese! i bet this would be a big hit at an office potluck, as it is good cold with a bit of balsamic or italian dressing
