Cabanossi, feta and olive pasta

    35 minutes

    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.

    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.
