    About this recipe: I made this Greek-inspired pasta dish to satisfy a craving for olives and feta cheese. I sometimes add artichokes or spinach for variation.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 4 

    • 1/2 (500g) pack wholewheat spaghetti
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 2 cloves garlic, minced
    • 1 punnet crimini mushrooms, sliced
    • 2 small courgettes, sliced
    • dried oregano to taste
    • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
    • 12 Kalamata olives, pitted and sliced
    • 50g (2 oz) feta cheese, crumbled

    Method
    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:35min 

    1. Cook spaghetti according to package instructions; drain.
    2. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat, and sauté the garlic 2 minutes. Mix in mushrooms and courgette. Season with oregano, salt and pepper. Stir in olives, and cook until heated through. Place pasta in the frying pan, toss to coat, and continue cooking about 2 minutes. Toss with feta cheese to serve.

    Note

    Wholewheat pasta is a good source of complex carbohydrate and has a low GI value.
