Pesto & Feta Pasta

Last night, I needed something quick for dinner and I was also wanting to use up the last of the fresh 'maters from our generous friend.  I threw together this main-dish pasta, using bowties, feta, the tomatoes, olives, and pesto.  We had steamed broccoli on the side.  The whole fam just LOVED this and the leftovers were good too, right out of the fridge.
