Spaghetti with sun dried tomatoes, basil and feta cheese



It's been such a wonderfully sunny day and I felt like the meal tonight had to have the taste of summer. This recipe delivered those flavours, fresh and fragrant without being difficult to make. Add some toasted pine nuts for a little extra something. 

Ingredients
Serves: 6

1 (500g) packet spaghetti
4 tablespoons olive oil
4 cloves garlic, crushed (I missed this out)
100g sun-dried tomatoes, softened and chopped
200g feta cheese, crumbled
1 bunch fresh basil, chopped
1/2 teaspoon crushed chilli flakes (optional)
salt and pepper to taste

Method
Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil. Cook spaghetti in boiling water until done  then drain. Return pasta to the pan.
Mix in olive oil, garlic, tomatoes and feta. Stir in basil, chilli flakes (if using), salt and pepper and serve warm.
