Cook the pasta according to the packet instructions.
Meanwhile, heat a large non stick pan on medium high heat. Add 2 tablespoons of the reserved marinated oil to the pan. When hot & sizzling, add the garlic pieces. Fry for about 1 to 2 minutes. Add the chopped tomatoes & fry for about 2 to 3 minutes or until the tomatoes begin to soften. Add some Herbamare salt, but not too much. Stir gently. Adjust the heat if necessary. Remove the garlic & tomato mix from the pan to a cooking pot with fitting lid.
In the same pan add 3 to 4 tablespoons of the marinated oil & heat up. Add the spinach leaves & let it get nearly wilted. Now, add the drained feta pieces, 2 tablespoons of the red wine vinegar & re-add the garlic & tomato mix. Stir gently around. Taste! It has to taste fab!

Meanwhile, drain the spaghetti, but keep just a bit of the cooking water. Take your spaghettti plate & fill it with pasta. Top with the veggie & feta mix & enjoy with a loved one! Stir the veggies in & under the spaghetti & eat it like this!!
MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM,....a lovely plate of fine food & it is vegetarian too!




Yesterday, I made this tasty & lovely pasta dish. It tastes fabulous: a bit sweet with the tomatoes & a bit sharp cheesy with the feta that is melting. That creates more of a sauce.
The mint also gives it a fresh taste!
I used gluten free corn spaghetti but you could use normal spaghetti.
This is super tasty! You should try it out!
