Greek Spaghetti with Tomatoes and Feta

This is a super, super, super simple recipe that was just kind of okay. I'd probably make it again if I had the ingredients but it was nothing special. I even used some Penzeys Greek Seasoning in hopes that it would be a little more exciting, but alas. It was good though!
