Sundried Tomato & Feta Pasta

Two days later and quite appropriately I am munching on this pasta as I type, the flavors have permeated even more and the fact that this has now been microwaved has not ruined the noodles at all (not even a bit!).

And a story…my husband forgot to take the leftover pasta to his work, fast forward to that same morning – wife spots leftover pasta and thinks to herself “score!” Don’t worry I sent him a very nice email letting him know I would make sure to enjoy *his* leftovers.

That’s all I got, so here are the goods:

INGREDIENTS (serves one big & hungry family)

1 (16 ounce) package angel hair pasta
3 Roma Tomatoes, Chopped (lay out on paper towel to dry a bit)
1/4 cup olive oil
½ cup of Lemon Juice
4 cloves garlic, minced
4 ounces sun-dried tomatoes, softened and chopped
1 (4 ounce) package tomato basil feta cheese, crumbled
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese


Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.

Over a medium heat in a large pan sauté with your Olive Oil the garlic and sundried tomatoes, cook for about 5 minutes.

Next add in your Roma tomatoes and Lemon juice. You will want to cook this mixture until the tomatoes soften and lose their texture a bit (5-10 minutes).

While that is cooking you can toss the angel hair pasta into your pot and cook as listed on the box.

Once pasta is cooked drain and pour into a large bowl or back in the pot. Pour your tomato mixture on top of the pasta and toss.

Next comes all of the feta & Parmesan just pour it over the pasta and stir…oh the yumminess.

Now, we get our eat on. Holla.

Have a super weekend just in case I don’t make it back with another recipe!

I would be very excited about those leftovers too! Anything that involves pasta, tomatoes, and cheese is a hit in my book!

Thank you so much for visiting my blog. Let me know how the basil comes out if you try it.
