Ingredients

150 g gluten free/wheat free penne 2 cups
1 tbsp olive oil 15 mL
1/2 onions, finely chopped 100 g
8 radishes 120 g
40 g feta cheese, light, crumbled
2 tbsp pasta cooking water 30 mL
2 tbsp Parmesan cheese, grated 6 g
salt [optional]
ground pepper to taste [optional]

Before you start

Keep the serving dishes in the oven at the lowest setting so they are warm when you serve.

A mandolin will make slicing the radishes easier.

Put a colander in the sink to drain the cooked pasta so that it will be ready when needed.

Method

  1. To save time, the pasta and the sauce are cooked at the same time. Start cooking the pasta.
  2. Meanwhile, prepare the sauce. Prepare the vegetables: Cut off the leaves from the radishes, remove the older leaves (they are bitter) and coarsely chop the younger ones. Slice the radishes into thin rounds. Finely chop the onion.
  3. Pour the oil into a pan, then add the onion and sauté 2-3 min until a little softened. Add the radish rounds and cook 2-3 min over low heat. Stir in the reserved radish leaves, crumbled feta cheese and the required amount of pasta cooking water. Keep warm over very low heat.
  4. Drain the pasta, then pour it into the pan. Mix well. Season with salt and pepper to taste, sprinkle with the parmesan cheese, then serve immediately.
