1 teaspoon oregano
1 cup fresh parsley
1 8-ounce carton half-and-half
1 package Tnuva Crumbled Feta (set aside 2 tablespoons for sprinkling on top)
1 16-ounce package fusilli
3 ½ tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon za’atar seasoning
3 cloves garlic, crushed

1. Put the oregano, parsley, half-and-half, and the Feta (minus 2 tablespoons) in a food processor or blender and pulse until the parsley is finely chopped. Set aside.

Add the pasta and cook for another minute, stirring constantly.
