Pasta Recipes


The countries that surround the Mediterranean enjoy olive oil, rich spices, and feta cheese. Mixed with small shells, this dish captures the entire flavor.

            1 pound small shells
            1 clove garlic
            2 tablespoons Colavita Extra Virgin Olive Oil
            2 medium potatoes, diced
            2 medium carrots, diced
            1 small red onion, chopped
            2 medium zucchini, diced
            6 ripe plum tomatoes, diced
            ½ teaspoon ground cumin
¼ teaspoon ground tumeric
            Salt to taste (optional)
¼ teaspoon ground white pepper
            1 teaspoon hot sauce
            4 ounces crumbled feta cheese
½ cup pitted black olives, sliced
¼ cup chopped parsley for garnish

Serves 4 to 6. 

Cook the pasta. 

In a large skillet, sauté the garlic in
Colavita Extra Virgin Olive Oil and discard when it turns brown. Add the potatoes and carrots, and when almost soft, add the onion, zucchini, and tomatoes. Add the cumin, tumeric, salt, pepper, and hot sauce. Combine the mixture with the pasta and toss the cheese and olives on top. Garnish with the parsley, and serve.
