Cook the pasta in a large pot of boiling water until just al dente.  While it’s cooking chop the basil, oregano and red onion.  You want about a 1/4 cup of each of the herbs.

Place the cheese in a medium sized bowl. I really like the flavour  of the fetas that already come mixed with herbs and spices.  This one is a garlic and herbs.

Add the onion.

Then the herbs.

Drizzle in the olive oil.

Mix everything together well.

Drain the pasta and place it in a large serving bowl.  While it’s still hot add the cheese mixture.

Stir it together well.  Since the pasta is still warm it slightly melts the cheese giving the salad a creamy texture.  It also softens the onions.

Stir in the olives.

This salad can be served warmed or you can refrigerate it until you need it.  Just make sure to give it a good stir before serving.
