Fetta and tomato spagetti

We share a pasta dish that has wonderful flavours and will only take minutes to prepare and better still, doesn’t have any meat for those trying to cut down.


  • 500g spaghetti
  • 50g butter
  • 4 spring onions, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 4 tomatoes, seeded and diced
  • 1/2 cup black olives, sliced
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil, chopped
  • 400g fetta cheese, crumbled
  • Black pepper


Cook the spaghetti according to the packet instructions until al dente. Drain without rinsing, cover and set aside.

Melt half the butter in a large saucepan and sauté the spring onions and garlic. Add the tomatoes, olives and herbs and heat through.

Add the hot spaghetti to the mixture with the remaining butter and fetta.

Season to taste with the black pepper and serve.

    Hi, If you do want some meat I recommend adding some sliced cooked sausages. Its also a good way to use up soft tomatoes. I also usually add some tinned tomatos. Delicious.

    From a grandad cook if you have a fennel bulb thinly slice some into the mix, a most aromatic flavour. Do it the Italian way and add whatever is in the larder.
