Roasted Red Pepper and Feta Pasta

This quick and easy pasta dish comes together in less than 15 minutes. The sauce itself doesn’t require any cooking and only uses 3 ingredients: jarred red peppers, feta and garlic. Add some rocket for freshness (and veg!) and you’ve got yourself a pretty dreamy dinner.

  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 2 1x


  • 200g dried pasta of choice
  • 300g jarred roasted red peppers (drained weight)
  • 100g feta
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 10g fresh basil leaves, thinly sliced
  • 2 handfuls rocket
  • extra-virgin olive oil
  • sprinkle of pink peppercorns, optional


  1. Bring a large pot of water to the boil. Season generously with salt and cook your pasta according to the package instructions, then drain, reserving a ladleful or two of the pasta cooking water.
  2. Meanwhile, place the roasted red peppers, feta and garlic in a blender and blitz until nice and smooth.
  3. Pour the sauce into the pasta, along with a splash of the pasta cooking water, and toss over a medium heat until the sauce nicely coats the pasta, adding more pasta water as necessary.
  4. Divide the pasta between bowls and top with the basil and rocket. Finish with a drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil and a pinch of salt and pink peppercorns.
