Sometimes you just run out of fresh ingredients and don’t have time to run to the store. That’s when you head to your pantry and ponder what you can make with what you have on hand…
This is exactly how this dish got thrown together, and I found the flavor combination so awesome that I marked it as a “to-be-repeated” recipe… which I am happy to share here!
All ingredients are Mediterranean diet friendly and should always be in your house.
Try this yourself next time you have to make dinner in a pinch, it’s much better than ordering food delivered to your house!
Linguini with sun-dried tomatoes, feta and olives
- Cook pasta in a large amount of salted water according to package instructions (7 to 12 min depending on the brand)
- While pasta is cooking, slice sun-dried tomatoes into thin strips. Cut olives in halves. Cut feta cheese in cubes (or crumbles if it is too soft for cutting). Slice basil in thin strips.
- Once pasta is cooked, drain all but about 1/2 cup of cooking water from the pot. Return pasta to the pot. Drizzle with 2 tbsp olive oil, toss briefly, then add the rest of the ingredients and toss again.
- Serve immediately and season with fresh ground pepper on the plate.
