A delicious pasta for a weeknight, weekend or even for a little cold pasta salad meal prep! I love this recipe because there are endless substitutions and you can always throw it together with whatever vegetables you have. The feta cheese and red pepper flakes give it the kick it needs. Throw it all together or chop your veggies before hand and you have a dinner that will impress most!
