Basic Mediterranean Pasta

I've made this recipe a few times now and it's delicious, and super simple. I have yet to take pictures, but trust me, it's delicious.

Basic Mediterranean Pasta

Servings: about 3


  • 6oz baby spinach 
  • 14.5 oz can of tomatoes, try to get Hunt's Diced Tomatoes with basil, garlic and oregano
  • 1 tablespoon garlic
  • 1 cup feta, try to get some with herbs, like President Feta with tomato and basil
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 lb or more fettucini and linguini
  1. Cook spinach. (Add a little water into a pan, throw the spinach in there, and simmer for about 5 or 6 minutes.)
  2. Boil water for pasta.
  3. Drain spinach water so only about 1/4 cup remains.
  4. When the water is boiled, add pasta and cook as directed.
  5. Add tomatoes, garlic, salt and pepper and mix. Put heat on low and let cook.
  6. Add feta, and mix until cheese melts, at least partially. You should have a light red sauce.
Serve warm over pasta, adding the tomato and feta sauce from bottom of pan for taste.

If you have more than three people, use more than one can of tomatoes, more spinach etc. You could actually use more than a 6oz bag of spinach; when it cooks down it isn't that much. I hope you enjoy, it's one my new family favorites.

This is the eighth part in a 16 set of posts of things I need to blog about. See more information here.
