This is one of my favorite pasta dishes. It is simple and quick to prepare, but, for good results, use only locally-grown, sun-ripened tomatoes.

Ingredients

2 leaves fresh sage, finely chopped 0.4 g
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 dried chili peppers, minced 0.4 g
1 tbsp olive oil 15 mL
2 tsp Parsley and Garlic Base 10 mL
1/2 cup Fresh Tomato Base 125 mL
30 g feta cheese, crumbled
160 g spaghetti
1 tbsp Parmesan cheese, grated 3 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.

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

Method

  1. Finely chop the sage; mince the garlic and chili pepper.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a skillet over low heat. Add the garlic, sage and chili pepper then sauté for 2-3 min, with stirring. Add the Parsley and Garlic Base, the Tomato Base and cook about 7-8 min over medium heat. Reduce the heat, then add the Feta cheese and mix well. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  3. To save time, while the sauce is cooking, cook the pasta. Pour the drained pasta into the skillet and toss well.
  4. Sprinkle with grated Parmesan and serve in the warmed dishes.

Super recette - c'est tout à fait "comme au resto". Ce soir, je la refais, et je vais changer la sauge pour du basilic et le feta pour du brie!
