Recipe: Penne Pasta With Tomato Sauce, Black Olives And Feta 

penne with tomato and black

Ingredients:

  • table spoon of virgin olive oil
  • 1 x red onion, chopped finely
  • 2 cloves of garlic, finely slices
  • 400g passata
  • large handful of fresh basil, remove stalks from basil leaves and chop finely (leaving a few extra for garnish)
  • tablespoon of balsamic vinegar
  • fresh ground pepper
  • sea salt
  • 600g of dried penne pasta (I used a gluten-free version)
  • 125g kalamata olives
  • 150g feta cheese

Recipe:

Heat the olive oil in a large pan on a medium/high heat and add onions and garlic until soft and golden brown.

Add passata and balsamic vinegar, season to your taste with salt and pepper and cook for 10-15 minutes stirring regularly.

Add fresh basil, stir in and reduce to a low heat.

Whilst the sauce is gently simmering away, start cooking your pasta by adding to a large pan with boiling water and a pinch of salt. Cook as per the instructions on the packet.

Once cooked, drain and serve into bowls. Top with passata sauce, add olive and crumble feta.

Garnish with fresh basil.

Enjoy!

      So many good quality substitutes out there Elizabeth, we also love gluten-free rice spaghetti, I can’t even tell the difference once the sauce is on x

    We realised how long its been since we’ve had pasta at home this week. I think its been over 6 months! This looks simple and delicious though

    Mmmmm, I’m craving pasta now! And I love black olives, I never liked them until I was past 25 and then I hit Olive Maturity – now I love them. #tastytuesdays

    I love tomato-based pasta dishes but I normally sprinkle cheddar or parmesan on top. Using feta instead is a lovely little twist, which I will definitely be trying in the future!

    What a delicious sounding dish! I agree with you about meal times…we all sit together and no TV or toys are allowed at the table! The kitchen certainly makes our house our home!

    MMMM this looks delish (though my eldest would have to pick out the olives)! Home made pasta sauce is always so much nicer than shop-bought isn’t it, and can still be quick and easy! Love your kitchen, it certainly looks cozy. Becky x #TastyTuesdays

    We’ve recently got into the habit of always eating our main meal at the table as a family, and we’re all readlly enjoying it. I’m sure my daughter’s fussy eating has improved, and while she’s not actually gone as far as eating any of it, she’s started serving herself salad from the dish in the middle of the table. Babysteps. She loves pasta too, and that recipe looks delicious. Thanks for hosting the linky.

    This looks so delicious. I tend to be really boring with feta and just use it on greek salads. Definitely trying it in pasta now!

    I am a massive fan of anything with Feta in. I really love they salty taste and the texture it gives to a dish. Pasta dishes are pretty much a timeless classic and I really love how easy they are. Tasty share!

    We always eat together as a family at the weekend, during the week my husband is home too late but I always try to eat with the boys. I too think it is so important.
    We aren’t at the sharing stories stage yet, both my boys just sit silently until everything is finished on their plate! It is the only quiet part of the day!!
    Love the look of your pasta dish. Feta and olives are definitely a winning combination.

    Oooh this looks delicious! I’m addicted to olives so will have to give this one a go. I’m also a massive advocate of the ‘no TV rule’ in our house – dinner time is family time x

    Oh yum, yum, yum! This is just the kind of simply delicious meal I love to serve up for my own family. I completely agree with the no TV at meal times rule plus I make everyone put their phones away on silent too. 🙂

    There’s nothing like fresh, home-cooked meal to get a family to the table. I always feel so sorry for people who weren’t brought up with a good eating culture at home. They have missed out on so much.

    Family meals are precious times. My favourite meals are when we’ve got family & friends staying at the Kitchen Shed. My Mum & Dad arrive on Thursday & my son the following week, I can’t wait.
    Love the pasta especially with the Feta & the sea bass looks delicious.

    Family dinners all together are such a joy. I couldn’t agree more, it’s a way to connect after we’ve all been off for 8 hours at work or school. Now if only my lil guy would eat what we eat i’d be over the moon!

      Oh I hear that, my eldest is pretty fussy himself but now he’s getting older, he’s definitely getting better. The youngest eats absolutely everything xx

    I could not agree more: family meals are so important. I love sitting around our table with Hubby and my 4. We don’t have the TV on either, but we do tend to chat about school and work.

    Nice mid-week pasta sauce! I love feta and olives together.

    Just added my post from bed; will add badge and drool over everyone else’s recipes in the morning!

      Oh thank you darling, imaging you lounging in bed all glamorous with your laptop and breakfast. Yes work and school chatter does happen although Peter and I do try not to discuss the blog if we can to help me switch off and focus on the kids x

    Eating together as a family is such a wonderful thing – we don’t manage it during the week but weekends always. There is nothing better than gathering loved ones around an abundant table! All those dishes look amazing but that seabass I want to eat now. x
