Following in my sister's footsteps

I have decided to post a recipe I concocted a few weeks ago but can't get out of my head and had to make it again a couple of nights ago. I'll be making in in a few night from now, so I'll post pictures of it. It is a Mediterranean style pasta and sooooo easy to make!

  • Whole wheat macaroni - you can use regular, but there are some good whole wheat pastas out now. 1/2 a box, which serves 2, with some left overs.
  • Chop up 1/2 of an onion and sautéed with olive oil.
  • Chop up a clove or two of garlic and throw in with the onion after the onion is almost translucent, let it cook for a minute or two. Then add the following all at once to the onions an garlic:
  • About 1/3 of a cup of roasted red peppers roughly chopped
  • A few tablespoons of capers, to taste
  • Some sun dried tomatoes roughly chopped, add a bit of the sun dried tomato oil too if you wish.
  • Roughly chopped artichoke hearts, drained
  • Roughly chopped kalamata olives, drained
  • After you all all of those ingredients to the pan, I usually put in some red pepper flakes, salt and black pepper. Heat through.
  • Toss with the drained pasta and add in crumbled Feta Cheese and toss so the feta is warmed.
Super yum! The nice thing is that you can make this with whatever you have on hand. The above ingredients are my favorite, but the other night I only had olive oil, onions, garlic, roasted red peppers, capers and two cobs of corn (uncooked that I sliced off of the cob and put into the pan just to barley cook through)..and that was it. It was healthy, easy to make and tasty.
