A Mediterranean comfort pasta recipe

One of my favourite and easiest meals to make is this Mediterranean Comfort Pasta. With only a handful of ingredients, this is an easy fix for when you're in a hurry and also is perfect for leftovers. It's my go-to comfort food meal, and there's something about home cooking that tastes great.


Linguine pasta (or your favourite type)
3-5 tablespoons of olive oil
5 shallots sliced
1 large garlic clove crushed
10-15 grape tomatoes sliced lengthwise
200 grams (or more as desired) of spiced salami slices, thinly sliced
1/2 cup (or more as desired) of diced Greek feta cheese
2 tablespoons of dried oregano
Salt & pepper to taste
Freshly shredded Parmesan cheese
Truffle oil to drizzle (optional)



  1. Add enough oil to coat the pan; turn heat to medium.
  2. Add sliced shallots, cook until transparent.
  3. Add salami slices.
  4. Add garlic clove when salami slices begin to crisp and aromas are noticeable. 
  5. Add sliced grape tomatoes, oregano, salt & pepper. Mix thoroughly and cook at medium heat for 5-6 minutes.
  6. Add feta cheese to pan and increase heat to med-high; mix to avoid burning.
  7. When the feta cheese is starting to melt and beginning to bubble, lower heat to medium. Taste and season accordingly, then remove from heat and pour over cooked linguine noodles.
  8. Serve with freshly shredded Parmesan cheese and drizzled truffle oil.

Bon appétit!!
