Substitute for Feta Cheese?

I found a great recipe that used Feta Cheese but unfortunately my wife won't eat feta. Is there an easy substitute? Here's the recipe:
Italian Sausage, Feta Cheese Pasta
This is such a quick recipe: Serving for 4

2 1/2 cups Rotini Pasta
4 Italian Sausages, hot, medium or mild
1/2 red bell pepper or a mixture of bell peppers
1/4 teaspoon thyme
1 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon red chili pepper flakes
3/4 cup feta cheese
1/4 cup fresh basil, chopped
1 Tablespoon olive oil
3/4 cup of pitted greek olives (optional)

1. Cook noodles.
2. Meanwhile; remove casing from sausages and break into 1/2 to 1 inch pieces. Saute the sausage and bell peppers until sausages are browned.
3. Remove from heat and add thyme, garlic and hot chili flakes.
4. When noodles are cooked, drain and toss with the 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Add the frying pan ingredients and toss with feta, basil and olives.
5. Serve immediately.
I planned on using ricotta instead of feta.. still, I'm not sure if there could be a better alternative.
