This is my quick to prepare and easy, weeknight family meal.

Ingredients (serves 4)

  • 500 g Spaghetti
  • 2 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2 cloves Garlic, crushed
  • 1 Large Red Chili, thinly sliced
  • 100 gms Baby Spinach Leaves
  • 3 tbsp Lemon Juice
  • 3 tsp Lemon Zest, finely grated
  • 100 g Persian Fetta Classic, reserve 2-3 tbsp marinated oil
  • Freshly Ground Black Pepper


  1. Cook spaghetti according to packet directions, until al dente. Drain well.
  2. Meanwhile, gently heat oil in a large, deep frying pan and add garlic, and chili. Stir-fry over medium heat for 3-4 mins, until soft. Add lemon juice and zest and toss to combine.
  3. Add spaghetti, spinach, fetta and reserved marinated oil to pan and toss to combine evenly. Top with freshly ground black pepper, to serve.


You could add broccoli florets instead of spinach. I usually use South Cape Persian Fetta found in cheese section of supermarket but Danish Fetta is ok.

  • Yummy! This has a lot of my favourite things like lemon, cheese, pasta and spinach.
    We’ll definitely be having this for dinner this week. Thank you for sharing.


  • Yum this looks so delicious. I almost got out of bed to go make it but I don’t have all the ingredients.


  • This looks amazing and it has all my favourite foods/flavours in it.
    I’ll definitely be giving this a go as I’m always looking for different ways to eat lemon ???? yumm

    Thank you ????


  • This popped up for me just as I was debating what to cook for dinner, and have all the ingredients on hand so will be trying it tonight, thanks!


  • Love this recipe it was so different from the normal pasta recipes that we all try yet it was beautiful. I would just drop the chilli to half next time.


  • I love it super simple, fresh and healthy great dish to whip up thanks….


  • Sounds simple but tasty!!


  • This looks very fresh and inviting. Thanks.


  • A quick and easy recipe that will be done often in my house.


  • We don’t really do chilli in our house but I love everything else about this recipe. We have pasta probably once a week so I’m always looking for new options to add to my repertoire. Thanks for sharing.


  • This is probably very delicious but not for me. Unfortunately I’m allergic to all citrus but I hope everyone else enjoys.


  • This looks rather yummy, thank you!


  • The combi might be nice but too little veggies for me. Maybe just leave the spaghetti out and just make 5x the amount of veggies ????


  • Ive made a variation on this before. Very yummy!


  • You can never go wrong with a spaghetti dish!
