Pasta with Onions, Peas, and Cheese

  • Pasta
  • Frozen peas
  • 1 red onion
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • Feta

Prepare the pasta according to the directions on the package; heat the peas in the microwave. Slice the onion thinly and sautee in oil with pressed garlic for ~10 min. Chop or crumble the feta into smallish pieces. Add the peas to the onions once they have cooked, and just at the end add the feta and turn the heat off; this will allow the feta to soften and melt but not completely disappear. Serve over pasta.


Made this last night as a “let’s clean up things out of the fridge and freezer,”, and it turned out really well: The sweetness of the onions and the peas contrasted with the sharpness of the cheese.
