I whipped up this pasta dish to satisfy a craving for olives and feta cheese. Add artichokes or spinach for variation.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 8 ounces uncooked whole wheat spaghetti
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 8 ounces crimini mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 small zucchini, sliced
  • dried oregano to taste
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 12 black olives, pitted and sliced
  • 1 ounce crumbled feta cheese

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add spaghetti and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.
  2. 2 Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat, and saute the garlic 2 minutes. Mix in mushrooms and zucchini. Season with oregano, salt, and pepper. Stir in olives, and cook until heated through. Place pasta in the skillet, toss to coat, and continue cooking about 2 minutes. Top with feta cheese to serve.

  6. Took the advice of others and added artichoke hearts spinach a whole can of olives and some red pepper. Everyone loved it!
  7. STRONGLY recommend substituting artichoke hearts for the zucchini! We got one small jar of the marinated artichoke hearts and one can of plain ones (cheaper) then mixed them together...there was definitely enough marinade from the small jar to completely soak the regular ones as well as the entire dish! I can't imagine this dish without - Read more ...
  8. Has the potential to be out of this world but it needs WAY more feta and olives.
  9. EDIT: I MEANT I ADDED THESE INGREDIENTS TO THE RECIPE! This is delicious!
