- Cook the Barilla® pasta for 1 minute less than the time indicated on the package. Drain pasta and drizzle with some olive oil to prevent from sticking. Place pasta flat on sheet trays or hotel pans and cool in a blast chiller. Alternatively, cool it down in a walk-in cooler. Store in zip lock bags or sealed plastic container; refrigerate and use within several hours.
- In a large bowl, mix the cold pasta with the remaining ingredients (except the feta). Check the seasoning and refrigerate until needed.
- Garnish servings with a sprinkle of feta.
