12 ounces spaghetti

4 tablespoons good quality extra virgin olive oil

3-4 cloves garlic, minced or you can use a garlic crusher

2 roma tomatoes, diced

1/4 cup kalamata olives

3 tablespoons of capers, drained

1/4 cup fresh basil, chopped (reserve a little for garnish)

1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (feel free to add more for extra spice)

5 oz feta cheese, crumbed (reserve a little extra for garnish)

Instructions:

Cook spaghetti in boiling salted water according to directions on package. Just about 5 minutes before pasta is done, heat up a sauté pan with oil. Once your sauté pan is hot add garlic and crushed red pepper flakes. Sauté garlic and crushed red pepper flakes until lightly golden and fragrant. Add in tomatoes, olives, capers, artichokes, feta and basil. Cook for about 5-10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Add spaghetti to sauté pan and toss to combine. To serve, transfer spaghetti to a bowl and add the rest of the feta cheese as well as the basil. Enjoy!
