Warm Greek Pasta is a comforting, one-pot, meatless meal that your entire family will enjoy.
Best Greek Pasta
This little bowl of Warm Greek Pasta is actually a bowl of happiness and comfort. Sent from me to you. Make it when you need a pick me up or a hug. Cuddle up on the couch with it, with a glass of wine, put on a movie that makes you happy or eat it around your dinner table, laughing and talking with your loved ones. It is ever so simple, as are so many wonderful things actually are, yet savory and delightful.
Why This Recipe Works
- Comfort Food: there is something about a warm bowl of noodles that just screams comfort food.
- Greek Flavors: the delicious noodles paired with classic Greek flavors like feta, olives and tomatoes – they come together beautifully here.
- One-Pot: you only need one pot to make this delicious meal!
What You Will Need
- fettuccine: you can really use any kind of pasta here you want (including gluten-free).
- roma tomatoes: I prefer Roma tomatoes as they are a little less juicy, but any tomato will really be fine.
- feta cheese: use dairy-free or regular, whatever works best for you.
- kalamata olives: use as much of these as you want!
- shallot: this adds a little bit of a bite.
- olive oil: this adds in that bit of liquid so the noodles don’t stick together – use your good olive oil here!
- kosher salt + ground black pepper: to help season – use as much or as little as you want!
How to Make Greek Pasta
Cook your noodles al dente.
Add in some olive oil.
Toss with feta, olives and tomatoes.
