We just had the best lunch. Wow, was this pasta dish ever good Fem. It was even better than I thought it would be. Great flavors and textures. I loved it all. kudos on making it into my Best of Cookbook for 2021. The Greek sheep and cow feta that I used broke down beautifully, adding a delicious flavor throughout the dish. The sweet cherry tomatoes turned dark and delicious; bursting beautifully to distribute their goodness into the homemade fusilli. I felt that the fusilli was a great noodle for this dish, it collected all the seasonings, tomato juice, olive oil and the feta, allowing it to cling in its twists and turns. The freshly cut basil, sea salt and fresh ground black pepper took it over the edge. I highly recommend this lovely dish to everyone.
