Wholewheat Fusilli Pasta with Basil, Chilli & Feta

Wholewheat Fusilli Pasta With Basil, Chilli & Feta

What makes this recipe so special though is the fact it merges my two most favourite cuisines: Greek and Italian (my family own both Greek and Italian restaurants although they never mix the cuisines. This dish proves it could work)! I omit the cheese as I’m vegan but the rest of the family loves this as is.

Don’t worry about the chilli either, remove it if you don’t like it or you’re worried about the kids.  I pretty much like chilli on my cornflakes so can’t get enough of the stuff!

I try and always opt for wholewheat pasta for a healthier alternative to the white stuff. Not only is this dish high in fibre, but it’s also a source of vitamin E, vitamin B and healthy fats.

Rather pretty too, don’t you think?!
