1. Bring large pot of lightly salted water to boiling for the pasta. Add pasta; cook for about 11 minutes or until firm but tender. Drain the pasta; rinse under cold running water to stop the cooking; drain well.

Sprinkle evenly with the remaining crumbled feta. Garnish with fresh oregano leaves, if you wish. Makes 6 servings.
