This is very quick to make, light, and very Greek. You could add some grilled chicken breast strips over top if you like. Enjoy!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. The sauce for this recipe is to be cooked quickly over a high flame so it is recommended that you have all ingredients preped and ready when you begin.
  2. Start by placing the olive sauce ingredients into a bowl and set aside. Place pasta into a large pot of boiling salted water. (Penne generally takes 10-12 minutes to cook al dente).
  3. When pasta is about 3-4 minutes from done, melt the olive oil and butter in a skillet over medium-high heat and brown the garlic. Add the olive sauce and let it simmer until pasta is ready.
  4. Drain pasta well, return it to the pot and stir in 2/3 of the sauce. Place the pasta onto a serving plate and pour the rest of the sauce over top. Sprinkle with feta cheese and fresh basil.

This was a very quick and easy to make pasta dish. The sauce came together very quickly and tasted pretty good. I added some leftover chicken that I heated up in the microwave and added to the pasta at the end to bulk it up a bit.

This was very nice! There was just enough sauce and it tasted great. I used vegetable broth and garnished with fresh parsley. Thanks! Made for Photo tag.
