Gluten free corn spaghetti with garlic, red & yellow tomatoes, spinach, feta & mint

Colourful cooking!

A fabulous vegetarian meal!

Yesterday, I made this tasty & lovely pasta dish. It tastes fabulous: a bit sweet with the tomatoes & a bit sharp cheesy with the feta that is melting. That creates more of a sauce. The mint also gives it a fresh taste! I used gluten-free corn spaghetti but you could use normal spaghetti. This is super tasty! You should try it out!

Recipe: For 2 persons


300 gr of gluten-free corn spaghetti

3 cloves of garlic, peeled & finely minced

150 gr of drained sheep’s feta pieces, marinated in oil & herbs ( Keep the marinated oil!!!)

about 5 to 6 tablespoons of this marinated oil

200 gr of fresh young spinach leaves, cleaned, washed & drained

7 gr of fresh mint leaves, cleaned & finely minced

2 tablespoons of a good red wine vinegar

2 large red tomatoes, washed, dept dry on kitchen paper, hulled & cut into wedges

3 medium yellow tomatoes, they are more orange,…I used home-grown, cleaned, hulled & cut into wedges ( I f you don’t have home-grown tomatoes, use another colour then the red tomatoes or other sizes like cherry tomatoes )

Herbamare salt


1. Cook the pasta according to the packet instructions.

2. Meanwhile, heat a large non stick pan on medium high heat. Add 2 tablespoons of the reserved marinated oil to the pan. When hot & sizzling, add the garlic pieces. Fry for about 1 to 2 minutes. Add the chopped tomatoes & fry for about 2 to 3 minutes or until the tomatoes begin to soften. Add some Herbamare salt, but not too much. Stir gently. Adjust the heat if necessary. Remove the garlic & tomato mix from the pan to a cooking pot with fitting lid.

3. In the same pan add 3 to 4 tablespoons of the marinated oil & heat up. Add the spinach leaves & let it get nearly wilted. Now, add the drained feta pieces, 2 tablespoons of the red wine vinegar & re-add the garlic & tomato mix. Stir gently around. Taste! It has to taste fab! Now, add the finely minced fresh mint & gently stir it around the pan. If necessary, add some Herbamare, according to your taste! 4. Meanwhile, drain the spaghetti, but keep just a bit of the cooking water. Take your spaghetti plate & fill it with pasta. Top with the veggie & feta mix & enjoy with a loved one! Stir the veggies in & under the spaghetti & eat it like this!! MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM,….a lovely plate of fine food & it is vegetarian too!
