Mediterranean Pasta

(inspired by our half gallon of homemade feta!)



pepperoni, 1/2 cup

onions, 1 medium, sliced

garlic, 1-2 cloves, minced

olives, pitted, 1/2 cup

feta, 1-2 oz

white wine, a dash of whatever you’re drinking


How to:

Boil some noodles. While that’s going down, pan fry some pepperoni to get the fat and drain on a paper towel. Sweat some onions and garlic in the fat you rendered in the previous step. Add some olives and cook a bit more. Then add some crumbled feta and white wine. Mix until well incorporated, then add the pepperoni back in. Serve over pasta with the malvasia.

Tasting Notes

Lisa: Simple, light and refreshing. The saltiness of the olives and feta goes nicely with the fat of the pepperoni. The malvasia istriana is not nearly as good as malvasia bianca, but does hit the spot for a white on a hot day.

Gary: Perfection when the temperature outside is in the triple digits. Malvasia anything is always lovely.
