“I don't know how this recipe came to be, I've altered it so frequently I don't even remember my original recipe. My newest alteration? Incorporating sundried tomatoes! My husband says it was my best yet, so I'm posting it. Play around with it, I'd love to hear your honest reviews and comments.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large pot, cook penne according to package directions.
  2. (I sometimes like to add vegetable boullion to the water during cooking to give the penne a little extra flavor); Drain and set aside.
  3. In a large wok style pan combine onions, peppers, garlic and Italian herbs with olive oil and sauteé until tender crisp, about 10 to 12 minutes.
  4. Mix in the kalamata olives and sundried tomatoes, cook another 2 minutes, or until heated through.
  5. Add the cooked penne, feta and freshly ground black pepper to the pan and toss gently to mix.
  6. Cook an additional 2 to 3 minutes, or until feta begins to melt.
  7. Top each serving with freshly grated Parmesan cheese.
