Pasta-Vegetable Toss

Scott and I are turning into big fans of Greek-style food. I just love love love Feta cheese! When we first made this recipe, it was just the pasta, veggies and cheese so it was a little dry. So we added Greek vinaigrette to help keep it moist! You could always add chicken to this recipe, or some sort of white sauce, but its also delicious as a vegetarian dish!
