Mediterranean Pasta

Pasta is one of my weaknesses, as is Mediterranean food. This combination is one of my all-time favorites. I love feta cheese, olives, and fresh tomatoes. This meal can be served cold or hot — as a light grab-and-go lunch or a refreshing dinner.

Ingredients

  • One 16-ounce package shell pasta
  • 1/3 Cup olive oil
  • 1 1/2 Teaspoon dried oregano
  • One 14-ounce can peeled and diced tomatoes
  • 2/3 Cups crumbled feta cheese
  • 2/3 Cups pitted Kalamata olives, chopped
  • 2 Tablespoons olive juice from a jar

Directions

Cook the pasta in a large pot as instructed on the package. Drain the cooked pasta and pour it into a large bowl. Add the olive oil, oregano, tomatoes, cheese, olives, and olive juice to the pasta. Mix well and serve.

Mediterranean Shopping Tip

As an alternative to sugary, salty, processed foods, try shopping for fruits and vegetables that are in season.

Mediterranean Cooking Tip

For a healthier alternative, substitute honey or molasses for sugar in baking recipes, and use a 3:1 blend of canola oil to olive oil instead of butter when cooking over the flame.
