Quick and Easy Mediterranean Pasta

This pasta came together when we had a friend over for dinner this weekend and I wanted to make something special, that also wasn't too labour intensive. I had stored a batch of Slow-Roasted Tomatoes in the freezer and paired them with canned artichokes, roasted red peppers (from a jar) and organic baby kale. The dish comes together very quickly and is both satisfying and delicious. If you don't have a batch of slow-roasted tomatoes prepared you are welcome to swap them for sundried tomatoes. I love the feta cheese from Fresh Start Fauxmage, out of Charlottetown, PEI and available locally here in Halifax, but you are welcome to swap this for another cheese of your choice or leave it out entirely.

Herbes de Provence Warm Olives

When we lived in Victoria one of our favourite places to eat was Be Love Restaurant. One of our favourite items on the menu was their warm olives, whose flavour changes with each seasonal menu. I have been missing the island of late and was inspired to make these olives, as a way to bring that west coast experience to the east coast. I have included a link for a simple Herbes de Provence recipe if you are unable to source it at your local grocery store. There are varieties with and without lavender, however, I find a bit of lavender really makes the blend. The leftover oil and seasoning can be mixed with some balsamic vinegar and used again as a bread dip. Enjoy!
