This is another one of those dishes that you just stumble upon. It takes the concept of iffits, and takes it to a new level of delicious. It’s a quick pasta salad that cooks in about the time it will take you to boil the water and pasta. It works equally well with filled pastas (such as tortellini, cappeletti or ravioli) or non-filled pastas (such as penne, tagliatelle or farfalle). For two people, you will need:
- 1/2 red onion
- 100 grams of feta-like cheese
- 25 grams of butter
- 250 grams of pasta
- One bag of mixed baby leaf lettuce
Put well-salted butter to the boil. Cut the onion in small pieces, and sautee in butter. Dice the cheese, and add about half to the onion and butter. Once the pasta has boiled, add it to the pan with the onion, butter and cheese. Top with the lettuce, and leave until the lettuce has wilted. Add to a bowl, mix well with the remainder of the cheese. Divide onto plates, and top with olive oil.
