Okay – key to the cooking up great pasta is great quality ingredients – pick the good ones! Go for top quality tinned tomatoes as they make a much better sauce. Remember to take the fluffy centres from the courgettes too as they can make the sauce taste bitter. 

To make a panful of our delicious Greek Pasta – simply sauté diced courgettes in olive oil, add freshly chopped garlic, then 2 tins of good chopped tomatoes, add your oregano and seasoning and simmer for around 15 minutes with the lid off so the sauce thickens. Throw in a couple of handfuls of black olives and stir well. 

Cook up some pasta – use the fresh egg pasta it makes the recipe so much nicer! Once cooked add the pasta to the sauce and stir through to coat everything. 

Divide into bowls and scatter over fresh rocket and crumbled feta – deeeeeelicious!
