We had this tonight for dinner and it was delicious! I have to share it with you! It’s a Greek themed super easy pasta that requires little work! You will need tons of fresh cherry tomatoes and fresh basil! If you like kalamata olives and feta cheese then you are going to love this!!
3 cups halved cherry tomatoes
15 leaves of basil-cut into ribbons
1/2 cup chopped red onion
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. black pepper
Red pepper flakes to your liking
Garlic powder or freshly minced to your liking
1/2 cup feta cheese
1/2 cup kalamata olives
3 to 4 servings of the Pasta of your choice-we did a really thin long noodle
Mix the first eight ingredients together gently in a bowl, cover with clear wrap and leave on counter or a few hours.
Cook the pasta when ready to eat then top with tomato basil mixture and lastly add the olives and feta, then serve. Makes about 3 to 4 servings.
There are so many yummy combinations you could do with this!
Here are some that I have thought of (add to the tomatoes as a base & olive oil/seasonings):
Chickpeas, zucchini, parsley and shredded carrots
Basil, pine nuts, yellow pepper and mushrooms
Chicken, red pepper, onions, balsamic vinegar and spinach
Sunflower seeds, Asparagus, radishes, fresh mint and yellow squash
I will be making this or some version of it a lot this summer!
I hope you enjoy it too!
