Meatless Monday: Spaghetti with Tomatoes, Black Olives, Garlic, and Feta Cheese

I've been taking recipes in my Pinterest boards and modifying them to make them less calories. I use whole wheat pasta, fat free feta and less olive oil and this dish still had a punch of flavor! 


Spaghetti with Tomatoes, Black Olives, Garlic, and Feta Cheeseadapted from Food and Wine

Ingredients:

1 1/2 pounds tomatoes (about 3), seeded and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1/2 cup Kalamata or other black olives, pitted
1/4 pound feta cheese, crumbled (I used fat free)
3 tablespoons drained capers
3 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf parsley
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon fresh-ground black pepper
3/4 pound spaghetti (I used whole wheat)
6 tablespoons olive oil (I only used 3 tablespoons)
3 cloves garlic, minced

Directions
In a large glass or stainless-steel bowl, combine the tomatoes, olives, feta, capers, parsley, salt, and pepper.
In a large pot of boiling, salted water, cook the spaghetti until just done (refer to package for appropriate time). Drain. Meanwhile, in a medium frying pan, heat the olive oil over moderately low heat. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add the cooked pasta and the garlic oil to the tomato mixture and toss.
