Linda's Greek Pasta

This is a family favorite. My mom's friend Linda Larsen visited us on our sailboat for a week and made this for us. I am not sure if she knows my family often has what we can Linda's Pasta or that we even call it that. Anyhow its yummy, quick to make, great hot or cold, tastes even better after a day or two, and is a staple food in all our houses now.


  • pasta (we go with any pasta that has a hole in it to get yummies stuck in - and always whole wheat)
  • two packages of frozen spinach
  • plum tomatoes
  • pine nuts (can be left out if you like but bring a nice crunch)
  • 2 packages of feta cheese
  • garlic
  • evoo


  1. We start by microwaving the spinach to defrost it, and then straining the water out of it by putting it into a cloth and compressing.
  2. Then we go about boiling the pasta in water, draining, and returning to the pot with some evoo
  3. In a pan saute garlic, pine nuts, spinach, salt, pepper and spices to your liking, then tomatoes in that order.
  4. Then we put the spinach mixture into pot with pasta, mixing well.
  5. Slowly crumble feta into pasta mixture and serve.
  6. Enjoy!
