Feta Cheese Pasta

Discussion in 'Italian Recipes' started by OliveOil, Apr 7, 2015.

  1. Take a handful of cherry tomatoes and cut them in half. Put them in a pan with some olive oil. Sprinkle some thyme, rosemary, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and sugar on them. You can use whatever spices you want but that's what I used.
    Fry the tomatoes on medium heat until they've turned a bit soft. Add the feta cheese. Keep the heat on medium until the cheese has kind of melted together with the olive oil and almost turned into a sauce. Mix in the pasta and stir.
    When I was making this yesterday I meant to make something completely different, but this turned out awesome! It's easy to make, delicious, and feta cheese is very low kcal, if that's what you're into.
     
  2. I do the same with feta or giuncata, but i add the diced cheese at the last minute before turning off the fire.
     
  3. Oh, that sounds so very yummy! I don't know if I would add thyme to it... maybe rosemary, garlic, salt pepper and basil! I would definitely add some basil!

    I do something similar with broccoli. I love broccoli, I eat it either boiled or steamed, but my significant other kinda hates it. So, the only way I managed to make him eat it is cooking it with pasta, it's pretty much the same recipe as your, only instead of cherry tomatoes, I add broccoli in a pan (but I boil it first, it doesn't take long).
    Then I fry it for a few minutes, add salt, pepper and garlic (the main ingredient is, in fact, the garlic!), then add the pasta and after I stir them together for another few minutes, I add the feta cheese. It melts and because creamy, I love it!
     
  4. Yeah, I wouldn't wish broccoli upon my worst enemy. Tomatoes are much better.

    Why wouldn't you add thyme? Thyme is used in a lot of Italian food, is it not? It's an essential part of bolognese, anyways.
     
  5. You eat broccoli with pasta? How is it? I've never tried that one before
