Mediterranean Pasta


I love Penzey’s spices. I go to the one on Elmwood weekly. They have recipe cards throughout the store and a lot of them are fabulous. Also if you subscribe to the free catalog, you receive a free spice each month! Can’t beat that…spices are the heart of cooking ❤

Ingredients:

  • 10 oz. dry bow-tie pasta
  • 4 TB olive oil, divided
  • 1 TB fresh garlic
  • ¼ tsp. Crushed Red Pepper
  • 16 oz. fresh spinach

  • ¼ cup sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
  • ¼ cup kalamata olives, pitted and halved
  • 1 TB Penzey’s Greek seasoning
  • 1 ½ tsp. basil
  • ¼ cup Feta cheese, crumbled

  • Salt and pepper to taste

Steps:

1.)     Boil the pasta according to the directions on the package.

2.)     In a large skillet, heat 1 TB. of oil over medium heat, add the garlic, onions and crushed red pepper. Heat until the onions are translucent and the garlic is a golden brown.
