I love throwing things together experimentally. My partner wanted me to remember this one and I thought it was good enough to share. Goes well with a simple tossed salad and crusty bread.

Serves: 4 

  • 2-3 Sticks Cabanossi - finely sliced
  • 6 pieces short cut rindless bacon - diced
  • 1/2 red capsicum - diced
  • 3 shallots - diced
  • 200gm black Spanish olives - crushed and pips removed
  • 200gm low fat feta
  • 1 (400gm) can crushed tomatoes
  • 1/4 tsp dried basil
  • 1/2 cup red wine
  • Tabasco sauce
  • 300gms Pasta (large shell is the best to catch the sauce and meat)

Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:35min 

  1. Pre-heat a large non stick fry pan on high. Add bacon and cabanossi and fry until it starts to go brown, stirring frequently (about 5 minutes). Reduce to medium.
  2. Put large pot water on to boil for pasta. Add Capsicum to the frypan and cook for a couple of minutes. Add pasta to pot water.
  3. Add shallots and tomatoes to frying pan and reduce heat to simmer. Add wine, olives, basil and 4-5 splashes of Tabasco (or more if you like) stir and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
  4. Drain pasta. Add feta to frying pan and stir. Mix pasta and sauce together and serve. Use fresh basil to garnish.
