Greek Spaghetti

Greek Spaghetti with Tomatoes, Olives & Feta

Another winner from Cooking Light – how do they do it? I’ve been curious about this recipe for some time but was hesitant due to the lack of sauce. We like things saucy and I didn’t want dry, sticky pasta. I tweaked the recipe a little bit with amazing results and was thrilled to learn the next day that it is equally tasty cold. I may make it with penne next time and have it as a chilled pasta salad for lunch the next day!

Greek Spaghetti with Tomatoes, Olives & Feta

Highly recommended – it was quick and so very tasty.  Note: you must love feta, or you probably won’t be too thrilled with this one.


  • 3 tsp olive oil;
  • 2 tsp dried oregano;
  • 3 large garlic cloves, minced;
  • 3 cups diced fresh tomatoes (I used mini plum tomatoes);
  • 2 cups pitted kalamata olives, halved;
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh parsley;
  • 3 tbsp lemon juice;
  • 8 oz uncooked thin spaghetti (cooked, should be about 4 cups);
  • 4 oz crumbled feta cheese;
  • Fresh black pepper.
