Prep: 5 mins Cook in 30 mins.
50ml olive oil
250g cherry tomatoes
250g baby plum tomatoes
200g block of feta
2 garlic cloves (more if you love garlic)
½ teaspoon dried oregano
300g of your favourite wholemeal pasta
Dried chilli flakes (optional) – a pinch is enough but if you like it fiery add a few more
A handful of basil leaves to dress the dish at the end
Optional: serve with a nice chunky piece of wholemeal bread and use it to soak up the juices, yum!
Wholemeal pasta has a higher fibre content than durum wheat pasta and can help you achieve the 30g fibre/day recommended by the British Nutrition Foundation. More and more studies are showing that a diet high in fibre can help reduce your breast cancer risk.
Tomatoes are rich in carotenoid lycopene. Carotenoids are substances found in fruit and vegs responsible for their bright colours and have also been linked with a reduced breast cancer risk, especially when you eat lots of them. Lycopene is fat-soluble, so olive oil will help with its absorption.
Olive oil is high in monounsaturated fatty acids, containing about 75% by volume. When substituted for saturated fat, monounsaturated fats help lower your “bad” LDL cholesterol.
