In large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta for about 8 min or until tender but firm; drain. Rinse under cold running water until cool; drain well.

Add to dressing in bowl with cucumber, tomatoes and onion; toss to combine. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve sprinkled with crumbled Feta. Garnish with olives and oregano (if using).
