O.K. it might not be the Mac ‘N Cheese all of you grew up with, the cheddar cheese and tiny elbow macaroni – but this is a Greek rendition of feta with pasta, I remember my mother made for us. Besides, it’s Feta Friday and all of you Feta Fans out there, you can eat anything with Feta, and I can guarantee you this is a tangy tasty pasta mouthful you won’t forget. Try adding olives, red and green peppers, mushrooms, or fresh tomatoes for additional flavor. This a pick from my long list of comfort foods! You may want to serve this with a Greek Horiatiki salad.

After experimenting with the two pastas, one elbow and one penny pasta (the Greek choice), I preferred the elbow pasta ( on left side) for a more enjoyable bite.
