"I made this up myself because I needed something that I could cook quickly, that was delicious, and doesn't break the bank. Everyone I know who I cook this for has fallen absolutely in love with it. You can eat it while it's still warm, that's how I like it best. Refrigerating it makes it more of a pasta salad."

1 (16 ounce) package
dry farfalle (bow tie) pasta
fresh tomato, chopped
cucumber, peeled and chopped
feta cheese, crumbled
Italian salad dressing
I thought it was MUCH better as a cold dish. I de-seeded the cucumber and tomato. This is a very, very light tasting dish, so much so that I used 1 cup of dressing versus the 1/4 cup stated. Next time I will use tomato flavored feta as well.
I ate this hot and then ate the left overs cold and I liked the cold MUCH better. Still good hot, but I think eating it cold as a pasta salad made a big difference. I can't get used to the idea of warm cucumbers for some reason.
i have this chilling in the fridge right now...it is really good warm...i had to taste it before chilling it and...i used grape tomatoes cut in half coz that is what i had and kraft tuscan italian dressing becoz it is my favourite italian dressing...oh and i used whole wheat bowties...i will make this again...thank u for the recipe...update ... the feta cheese i used was a pkg. from kraft...crumbled feta with oregano, sun-dried tomatoes and cracked peppercorns...another update...it is very good as a chilled pasta salad...my unexpected company thought it was really good...thanks again...
I live in Greece and made it for Greek people, and they loved it. You definately need to make it and chill it. Stir in the dressing before serving. I used my homemade feta, olives, and olive oil to make my own dressing, which makes it so good!!!
This was very good, thank you. I was looking for a warm recipe with cucumbers and pasta in it. I didn't have feta and used parmesan as another reviewer suggested. I also used canned organic tomatoes since I didn't have fresh.
Delicious and simple. I used parmesan instead of feta because that's all I had but it tasted great.
I tried this recipe but made a few changes and it turned out great. **Added purple onion and used Newman's Parmesan and Roasted Garlic dressing instead of Italian
I used Greek salad dressing instead of Italian because it sounded better with the Greek flavors in the salad. I definitely preferred this as a cold side dish. Great in the summer.
