Taste&Create VIII: Greek Feta and Tomato Pasta

For Taste&Create VIII, I was hooked up with Teresa from I’m Running to Eat.  Teresa is an avid runner and cooks healthy meals for her family.  I had no problem finding something from her blog to highlight here, but I cringe to think of Teresa’s reaction to the billion-calorie sweets I post– sorry Teresa!

From Teresa’s site, I chose Greek feta and tomato pasta, a recipe that she says is a favorite, and although it’s vegetarian, even the carnivores in her family love it.  Since I eat a mainly vegetarian diet, but R could live off steak, that sounded perfect for us.

This came together in a snap.  It’s one of those dishes where the sauce is basically made in the time it takes the pasta to cook–I love that!  Rather than the thin spaghetti the recipe calls for, I used farfalle here.  I wanted to take advantage of the last hurrah for fresh tomatoes before the cold sets in in Sydney, and used cherry tomatoes on the vine, cooked just until they burst.  And since I had a giant bunch of basil on the counter, I tossed some in at the end.  My favorite part of this dish, though, was the feta, which just barely melted from the heat of the pasta, and turned really creamy. 

Thanks Teresa for a great dinner (or lunch…I’ve made it three times already, actually), and Nicole from For the Love of Food for hosting T&C!
