Pasta with Feta and Sun-Dried Tomatoes

This was a pasta that the whole family enjoyed. I used whole wheat angel hair in this, but use whatever pasta type or shape you want. Fresh basil or parsley would have been a welcome addition, but I didn't have any on hand. Olives would have been tasty, too. I didn't add any salt; feta and parmesan cheeses provided plenty of salt for our tastes. Use a good quality olive oil for this dish. We had this with steamed broccoli. (I know, we have pasta and broccoli a lot for dinner.... it's good stuff!!)

Pasta with Feta and Sun-Dried Tomatoes

1 (16 ounce) package angel hair pasta
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
juice of 1/2 lemon
3-4 cloves garlic, crushed or minced
3 ounces oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, drained and coarsley chopped
1 (6 ounce) package feta cheese, crumbled
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
pepper to taste

Cook pasta in boiling water, according to package directions. Meanwhile, mix olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, and tomatoes in a large serving bowl. Drain cooked pasta; add to large serving bowl with oil mixture and toss. Add feta, Parmesan cheese and pepper. Serve warm.
