Spaghetti with Spinach and Feta Cheese Sauce

"Did you know that ideally thin delicate pastas such as Spaghetti and Vermicelli should be served with light, thin sauces and thicker pastas, contastingly, like Tagliatelle go well with heavier sauces? Pasta shapes with holes and ridges like Macaroni and Fusilli are perfect for chunkier sauces."

  1. Thanks a lot for this wonderful recipe. was easy to make and everyone loved it. i indianized it a bit by adding chilli flakes for a very slight spicy add on.
  2. I liked the color, the texture,and the flavor! I didn't have peppers, so I used diced tomato. Next time, I may add the feta earlier so it can become part of the roux/more integral in the sauce/better distributed throughout. I also added sliced mushrooms (it was that or throw them out!), and I'd do it again.
  3. This was delicious!! I was a bit skeptical, since I'm not fond of feta. But I had the ingredients on hand. This was easy, satisfying and quick. The feta was not too strong at all. I did add more garlic. Thanks!
  4. This is the first time I've been on thsi website and the first recipe i've was absolutely delicious, although i didn't see the serving size at the side and had to add more feta and milk to my sauce alter, but it was delicious, i hate boiled spinach, but thsi was great
  5. Char, thanks for posting this. I made this tonight for supper and it was wonderful! Even both DD's who hate spinach cleaned their plates and even asked for seconds! Now that is impressive. I now have a new way for my kids to each something good for them. The feta was perfect, not to strong. Next time I think I will try with some gorgonzola cheese and a little more garlic (can never have to much of that). Thanks again!
