Greek Pasta

Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

I am down in Kentucky with my family right now, getting a sun burn and playing pretty pretty princess with my nieces.  We move into our house in Columbus in 5 days (can you tell I’ve been counting?) and my first official day at my new job is on Tuesday.


Holy falling into place.  All of these things coming together at once can really mean only 1 thing.  Really easy dinners. The kitchen has taken a back seat to life, and I am finding that instead of wanting to be creative and come up with unusual dinners, I just want to get in and out of the kitchen quickly so the rest of life can happen.


Weird, right?  I get that most of you are always like that, but it’s a different thing for me.

And just because I want to do it quickly doesn’t mean I don’t love it.  It just means that sometimes, life takes over.  I feel fine with it, knowing that soon, after I’m settled, the chaos will die down and the open Saturday afternoons will find their rightful place: An apron, open windows, and flour on the kitchen counter.


Until then, you’ll probably see a lot of these kinds of dinners.  Quick and dirty.

Greek Pasta



Bring a large pot of salted water to boil.  Cook the pasta to box instructions. Reserve 1 cup of the starchy cooking water from the pasta.  In a large bowl, combine the feta, tomatoes, parsley, lemon juice, olives and capers.  Set aside. Bring the olive oil up to temperature in a medium skillet over medium heat.  Saute the garlic for 3 minutes. Add the cooked pasta to the olive oil and toss to coat.  Add the cooking water, a little at a time, just until it looks like the whole batch of noodles is coated.  Toss the olive and tomato mixture with the pasta until well incorporated and creamy.
