Pasta with Spinach & Peas

Ingredients

You can add salt & pepper to taste. The Feta cheese has a salty taste & so I didn’t add any extra salt. You can serve the dish with freshly ground black pepper.

How to make Pasta with Spinach & Peas

  1. Boil water in a large pot to cook the pasta. When the water boils, add the pasta & cook for approximately 10 minutes until ‘al dente’ tender & chewy at the same time.
  2. Chop the onion into small pieces and pan fry in Extra Virgin Olive Oil until soft and golden brown.
  3. Cook the peas in boiling water for just a couple of minutes.
  4. Steam the spinach in a pan until wilted.
  5. Add the peas & the spinach into the pot with the onion and add more EVOO as required.
  6. When the pasta is almost ready add the feta to the vegetables.
  7. Drain the pasta and add some more Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
  8. Mix all the ingredients together and let it sit in the pot for 5 minutes before serving.
  9. Serve with parmesan cheese, a dollop of ricotta or a swirl of EVOO on top.
  10. Enjoy with a fresh Italian salad & maybe a glass of red wine.

A citrus marinade that is juicy and full of flavor and the longer you marinade your chicken the better it will be.  I like to prepare mine the day before and let it sit in the refrigerator for 24 hours, then all I have to do is set it on the grill.  I'm sure you could also bake it in the oven or saute on the stove top, whichever is your preferred way of cooking chicken.
