Ingredients
  • 120 g pasta
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 small red onion (peeled and sliced)
  • 1 clove garlic (peeled and sliced)
  • 1 tbs black olives (sliced)
  • 1 tbs green olives (sliced)
  • 150 g tomatoes (chopped)
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 50 g Greek feta (cubed)
  • salt and pepper (to taste)
Instructions
  1. Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil and add the pasta.
  2. Pour a good glug of olive oil into a large frying pan. Fry the red onion and garlic with a sprinkling of salt, until it starts to go soft, add a good pinch of oregano. Chop the tomatoes, and add to the frying pan along with the olives.

  3. Add a few spoons of the pasta water to the sauce - the starchy water helps coat the pasta and adds a silkiness to the sauce.

  4. Strain the pasta when cooked and give it a good shake

  5. Add the pasta to the sauce in the frying pan and stir to mix. Add the cubed feta, check the seasoning, and stir gently a couple of times. Serve immediately with some freshly chopped parsley or chives.
