- If the Fusilli sticks to much, add 1 tablespoon olive oil after cooking and draining to the pasta. Adding it to the cooking water won't help.

- Fusilli can be substituted with Penne, Tagliatelle or Farfalle. Don't substitute it for Macaroni, because it's smaller and it will get an over structure.
- If you can't get Feta, use white cheese (with herbs)
- Warm pita bread and hummus. Or these pita bread with goat cheese and walnut dip
