Rustic Mediterranean Pasta With Tomatoes

READY IN: 28mins
Recipe by Annacia

Try this when you crave a fast-fix, light pasta. The no-cook tomato sauce marries beautifully with fresh parsley and unexpected raisins and pine nuts.

Lovely pasta! I found it midway that my feta was moudy. Instead I added boccocini and some freshly grated parmesan (for sharper and saltier flavour). Still the flavours were great. Feta cheese would for sure be the right kind of cheese and I plan to make it again as soon as I get some Feta cheese in the kitchen.
