Baba’s Feta Pasta

Greek Pasta Recipe with sauce made out of feta, stock, cream cheese and other ingredients. Uses mixed spice for special flavor, and is a great dinner or mid-day meal.



  1. Prepare & chop most ingredients before you start.
  2. Get a small deepish pan and heat it to low-medium temperature. Add a good amount of virgin olive oil and place one of the small onion pieces into the pan. Wait until it starts to sizzle and add the rest of the onion. Mix well and make sure the temperature is not too high as it can damage ingredients. Optional: You can sprinkle some sugar over the onion to make it sweeter. Then after a few minutes, when the onion has browned/softened, add in the garlic and wait 1-2 minutes, then you can turn off heat and put it to the side for later.
  3. Get a medium-large sized deepish pan, heat with oil and then add in the olives, courgettes and mushrooms. Sprinkle salt every now and then to enhance taste. After a few minutes when they are soft and are around the same color, then add in the onion and garlic from the smaller pan.
  4. Wait a couple minutes and then add the broccoli and tomato slices to the mix. Wait 2-3 more minutes and then get your rinsed feta and melt it in the pan (chop to speed up).
  5. When the feta has nearly finished melting, add in the stock to the mix. Turn the pan temperature down slightly and then let it bubble for 5 minutes (add a timer). Make sure to add the cover to the pan to keep in the flavor.
  6. Immediately after, get a large deep pan for the pasta and add boiling water. Turn the pan on high and add generous amounts of salt to it, and a little drop of olive oil if you want too (or keep stirring) to stop pasta sticking. Optional: At this step you can put on plates/bowls to heat.
  7. After the 5 minutes timer is up, add the overfilled tablespoon creme cheese to the main mix, stir, then re-add lid.
  8. Wait 2-3 more minutes and then you can test the sauce if you want. If you feel there is some missing, add more mixed spice or herbs such as parsley to it.
  9. Turn down the main mix again slightly, Now test a pasta piece. If the pasta is semi-soft, wait until it is fully done. When it is done all the way through, turn off the pasta pan and add the 1/3 Mug of Whole milk to the mix.
  10. Strain the Pasta, when done, wait one minute and turn off the main mix.
  11. Serve your pasta and cover with the sauce.
