Broccoli and Feta Pasta

I found this recipe on Pintrest and knew I had to make it immediately.  My husband pretty much hates all the ingredients (except the pasta and chicken) so I made it while he was out of town for work and I devoured it.  Feta cheese is one of my favorite foods on earth and broccoli and olives are pretty high on the list as well.  Mix those with pasta and chicken and I'm a happy girl.  The recipe did not call for chicken but because I ate this as my main course I added it in.  I think you are going to like it!

1 pkg. steam in the bag broccoli florets

2 tbls. olive oil
1 tbls. red wine vinegar
salt and pepper to taste
1 rotisserie chicken (optional)
