For best results, choose bright-coloured radishes that feel firm when gently squeezed and with green and crisp leaves. Bow ties may be replaced with any other short cut pasta.

300 g farfalle (bow-tie), or other short pasta 4 1/2 cups
1 1/2 tbsp olive oil 23 mL
1 onions, finely chopped 200 g
16 radishes 240 g
80 g feta cheese, light, crumbled
1/4 cup pasta cooking water 65 mL
4 tbsp Parmesan cheese, grated 12 g
1 pinch salt [optional] 0.2 g
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.


  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 it is 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.
