Weight Watchers Greek Style Pasta

Tips and Tricks

Pasta

Cook the penne al dente according to the package instructions. This ensures the pasta retains a firm texture when mixed with the other ingredients.

Olive Oil

Use extra virgin olive oil for a richer flavor. It enhances the taste of the garlic and pine nuts.

Garlic

Mince the garlic finely. Smaller pieces will distribute more evenly, providing a consistent garlic flavor throughout the dish.

Pine Nuts

Toast the pine nuts until golden brown. This brings out their natural oils and enhances their nutty flavor.

Tomatoes

Halve or quarter the cherry tomatoes for a better mix with the pasta. Smaller pieces distribute more evenly and blend well with the spinach.

Spinach

Squeeze out excess water from the thawed spinach. This prevents the dish from becoming watery and helps the flavors to concentrate.

Olives

Mix both black and green olives for a more complex flavor profile. Their distinct tastes add depth to the dish.

Feta Cheese

Crumble the feta cheese finely. Smaller crumbles mix better with the pasta and other ingredients, ensuring every bite has a bit of cheese.

Serving

Garnish with a sprinkle of freshly ground black pepper and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil before serving. This adds an extra layer of flavor and a nice presentation.

Storage

Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge. Reheat gently on the stovetop to avoid drying out the pasta.
