cup uncooked orzo or rosamarina pasta (6 oz)

can (14.5 oz) diced tomatoes with basil, garlic and oregano, undrained
container (7 or 8 oz) plain hummus (3/4 cup)
cup crumbled tomato-basil feta cheese (4 oz)
cup pitted Kalamata olives, coarsely chopped
Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 8-inch square (2-quart) glass baking dish with cooking spray. Cook and drain pasta as directed on package.
Meanwhile, on large microwavable plate, microwave burgers uncovered on High 2 to 3 minutes, turning once, until thawed.
Spray 12-inch skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium-high heat until hot. Add pepper and onion stir-fry; cook 2 to 3 minutes, stirring frequently, until crisp-tender. Stir in diced tomatoes. Cook 4 to 6 minutes, stirring frequently, until slightly thickened. Remove from heat.
In medium bowl, stir pasta and hummus until coated. In baking dish, layer half each of the pasta mixture, vegetable mixture and cheese; top with burgers. Repeat with remaining pasta mixture, vegetable mixture and cheese. Sprinkle olives evenly over top.
Cover tightly with foil; bake 35 minutes. Uncover; bake 5 to 10 minutes longer or until heated through. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
The burgers in this recipe are microwaved for a brief flash to thaw them before the dish is assembled and baked. This step ensures they will heat through during baking.
