✅ Looking for budget-friendly meal ideas? We have put together some recipes that won’t break the bank. Try this savory and satisfying Fresh Tomato, Basil, and Persian Feta Pasta! The best part is you can make it for under $20! 🍅🌿🍝
3/4 Persian Feta jar – $12
1 packet pasta – $1.00
1/2 bunch basil – $1.60
1/2kg tomatoes – $2.95
Boil your pasta according to packet instructions.
Meanwhile dice your tomatoes and pop them into a bowl large enough for the whole pasta dish to go into. Break all your basil leaves away from the stem and add to the bowl with tomatoes. Add Persian Feta to the bowl, as well as the oil from the feta jar (make sure you leave enough oil in the jar to cover and preserve any remaining feta in your jar!). Give it all a stir.
Once the pasta is boiled, drain it and add it to the bowl while it’s still hot. The heat of the pasta will melt the feta and make this super creamy, while the tomatoes and basil stay fresh and sweet and maintain their texture.
Give it all a good stir to coat all the pasta with the metled feta and evenly mix the tomatoes and basil through. Add salt to taste, and cracked black pepper. And serve! So so yummy.
