Directions:
In a medium sauté pan over a low flame, add oil, garlic, oregano, salt and pepper and cook slowly for about 8 minutes or until the garlic just begins to brown.
Remove from heat and add the lemon juice. Set this mixture aside.
Start cooking the pasta per the box directions but cook just slightly under cooked.
While the pasta is cooking, start preparing the remaining ingredients.
When the pasta is just a little under done, remove to a colander and drain but do not rinse.
Place cooked drained hot pasta in a large bowl and add the flavored oil and lemon juice mixture. Stir and let sit at room temperature for a few minutes.
Add all other prepared ingredients except feta and stir. Refrigerate until chilled then stir in the feta and serve.
