Fresh tomato and feta spaghetti recipe

Need a fast lunch dish? This delish pasta pairs tomatoes, olives, feta and garlic with al dente pasta - perfect for feeding the family.



  • 6 vine ripened tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 cup pitted Kalamata olives
  • 200g  full cream feta cheese, crumbled
  • ½ cup flat leaf parsley, chopped
  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 4-6 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 500g thin spaghetti, cooked and refreshed in cold water.
  • freshly ground salt and pepper


In a large serving dish, combine the tomatoes, olives, feta and parsley.

Heat a frying pan over a medium heat and add the olive oil. Fry the garlic for a minute and add the pasta to the pan.

Toss to coat the pasta well in the garlic oil for a few minutes until warm and then pour the garlicky pasta and oil into the serving dish over the tomato mixture. Combine well and serve.


  • Make sure you use the best olive oil you can afford for this recipe as it really influences the flavour.
  • I have grated zucchini into this dish before and my kids didn’t notice at all.
  • If you need some added protein, you can add a large tin of Italian style tuna, drained, to this pasta.
