I’m excited about this first challenge, although an easy recipe, I’m keen to see what my friends have done with it. This is my interpretation. Enjoy!
I decided to change the recipe a bit, since I am not a fan of cold food. The praise however, goes to a very good friend of mine, who showed me this recipe.
I cut fresh tomatoes into bite size bits. I pitted calamata olives, which are my personal favourite. I didn’t have pecorino, but I love feta, so I diced some Danish style feta. I seasoned the tomatoes with some salt and pepper. I did not use onion, garlic or chilli in my version.
The tomatoes and olives I tossed in a tiny bit of olive oil on the stove on medium heat for at 3-4 min, just until the tomatoes soften slightly, adding the feta for the last minute.
I used macaroni instead of spaghetti. No reason in particular, I just prefer macaroni for this recipe. Once the pasta was done, I tossed the tomato topping in the pasta. Melted Gouda cheese to finish.
Quick and easy and delicious!
