Serves 4 | Prep Time 10-15 minutes | Cook Time 10-15 minutes

Ingredients

1 lb. Linguine
1/2 c. MEZZETTA Extra Virgin Olive Oil (I used a little less)
4 cloves minced garlic
1/4 tsp. hot pepper flakes (I added 1/2 tsp.)
1/2 Cup Red Onion, chopped
1/2 Red Bell Pepper, chopped
1/2 Green Bell Pepper, chopped
2 medium ripe tomatoes, chopped (I used 6 Roma tomatoes)
1/2 c. pitted MEZZETTA Calamata olives, chopped
1/4 cup MEZZETTA Sun Dried Tomatoes
1 tsp. salt (did not nead this much salt, olives are salty)
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/4 c. fresh basil, chopped
1/2 c. feta cheese


I soaked my chopped sun dried tomatoes in olive oil (enough to just oil them up) for a 1/2 hour before cooking time.



In 1 large pot of boiling, salted water cook linguine for 8 to 10 minutes or until tender but firm drain well.


Meanwhile, in large skillet, heat half of the oil over medium heat cook garlic, hot pepper flakes, onion, & both peppers for 4 minutes.


Add fresh tomato and cook for additional for 3 to 4 minutes or until heated through.


Add sun dried tomatoes, olives & basil and heat through.


Spoon enough over pasta.


Top with crumbled feta cheese.
