No-cook Tomato and Feta Sauce

What can you cook for supper when your kitchen is covered in dust-sheets and there is sawdust everywhere?

[Finally – having left it FAR too long – we have sanded down our lovely wooden kitchen worktops to re-oil them. So normal kitchen activity has been suspended for a while.]

Well – the answer must be no-cook meals!

This is a really easy and quick no-cook pasta sauce – although when I say ‘no-cook’ you will, of course, need to roll back the dust-sheets to cook the pasta.


No-cook Tomato and Feta Sauce

(Serves 4)


  • 8 really ripe tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 medium red onion, finely diced
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • a handful of fresh basil leaves, roughly chopped
  • 100g feta, crumbled
  • 400g pasta such as fusilli


  1. About 30 minutes before you wish to eat, put the first 6 ingredients into a bowl. Mix together, and season with freshly ground salt and pepper. Then cover with clingfilm and refrigerate until ready to eat.
  2. Cook the pasta in a large pan of boiling salted water. When ready, drain.
  3. Pop the pasta back into the pan, mix in the tomato mixture and feta.
  4. Serve with a green salad.
