Ingredients

Directions

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and cook pasta for 7 minutes.  Drain and set aside.  In a small bowl mix tomatoes, oregano and basil together; set aside.   Next, melt butter in a medium-sized sauce pan and then add garlic, cooking until fragrant, about 1 minute.   Add flour and cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly to avoid lumps.  Slowly add milk to the mixture, whisking the whole time, and bring to a boil.  Reduce heat and simmer for about three minutes or until sauce thickens, stirring or whisking constantly. Remove pan from heat and stir in half of the feta cheese. Next, stir in tomato mixture and cooked pasta.  Pour pasta mixture into an 8- or 9-inch baking dish sprayed with non-stick cooking spray and sprinkle remaining feta cheese on top.  Bake in a 400° F oven for 20-25 minutes or until the sauce is bubbly and the cheese begins to brown.  Serve immediately.
