Ingredients You'll Need:
  • Your favourite pasta noodles
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 25-30 grape tomatoes, cut in half
  • 3-4 handfuls baby spinach
  • 1 cup feta cheese, crumbled

  • Glug of good quality extra virgin olive oil
  • Splash of red wine vinegar
  • Chili pepper flakes
  • S&P
  • Fresh oregano to garnish

 

How To:
  1. Saute onion and garlic in a large pan
  2. Add halved tomatoes and cook until beginning to break down
  3. Add cooked pasta directly from the cooking water (the pasta water helps to create a nice sauce!)
  4. Toss in spinach stirring until it begins to wilt
  5. Add feta, olives and drained marinaded red onion
  6. Finish with a good glug of EVO, a splash of red wine vinegar and liberal amounts of fresh ground pepper and chili pepper flakes
  7. Garnish with fresh oregano.
