Feta-tomato pasta

Ooh, this wasn't half bad. It's a really simple recipe - I based it on something I read in Buffé which is a magazine by ICA, one of the largest grocery stores. This recipe made a lot of food - dinner for two and four lunches for me.

Feta-Tomato Pasta

250 g penne
1 large onion, roughly chopped
3 cloves of garlic, chopped
200 g feta cheese
3 tbsp creme fraiche
500 g crushed tomatoes
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 tbsp runny honey
olive oil

Gently sweat the onion and garlic in the olive oil. Add the tomatoes and the dried herbs. Let cook for 20 minutes. Meanwhile, cook the pasta according to instructions on the package. Mix the creme fraiche with half of the feta cheese. Crumble the rest. When the sauce has reduced, stir in the honey and the creme-fraiche-feta mixture. Stir together with the pasta, add a bit of pasta water if you want a looser sauce. And finally stir in the reserved feta cheese. Top with some fresh herbs if you have them at hand.

Recipe looks good but come on - the picture looks horrible! It makes me not wanna cook this and a recipte this good deserves a much better pic.

Dave, I totally agree. This wasn't one of my better efforts :) Sometimes though, the reality is that I have about five seconds to take a photo, and well, this was one of those times. If I make it again, I'll make sure to update the pic :)
