Pasta with Tomatoes & Feta

Serves 2-4

1 container cherry or grape tomatoes cut in half

1/2 cup of feta cheese, crumbled

1/2 tsp oregano

2 tbls olive oil

2 cloves minced garlic

1/2 lb pasta (spaghetti works best)

Method

Get a pot of pasta water started and salt it well, bring to a boil. Heat olive oil in a shallow pan, add garlic and watch that it does not burn. Once it’s fragrant it’s time to add the tomatoes. Let  them cook until they are soft enough to smash with the back of your spoon.  This is a great time to let kids help. They love smashing the tomatoes.  Keep this mixture on low until pasta is ready. Once pasta water is ready, drain your pasta. Add oregano and feta cheese to the tomatoes and get all ingredients incorporated. Now’s the fun part, add your pasta directly to the tomatoes in the  pan and toss until all strands are coated. A little fresh basil would be a great addition. You are ready to serve!
