Delicious penne pasta, green olives, sun-dried tomatoes and homemade baked Almond Feta come together in this simple, easy-to-make and perfect-for-summer Mediterranean Pasta recipe. Use fresh herbs such as oregano and basil to bring this meal to the next level.
This meal is my favorite put-summer-on-your-plate-dish because what’s more summery than sun-dried tomatoes, olives and fresh herbs from the garden! I’ve topped this deliciousness with the Baked Almond Feta, which adds a nice lemon taste and crumbly texture.
The best thing about this meal is once you’ve got the Baked Almond Feta ready, it comes together in just a couple of minutes. Just boil the pasta, quickly heat the garlic, olives and sun-dried tomatoes in a large pan, add herbs, spices and pasta and stir everything together. Dinner is served, easy as that.
