Serving Size: 4
Total Time:

This is a super simple summer dish that's light, full of flavor, and comes together in all of 15 minutes! There is barely any cooking required. I promise! Sure. These noodles don't look saucy... but they taste amazing and are absolutely perfect to end a hot summer day with.


  • 2 cup cherry tomatoes (I used a mix.), halved
  • 8 Ounce whole wheat or veggie spaghetti
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp lemon, juiced
  • 1 Tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 0.5 cup fresh basil
  • 2 garlic cloves, Minced
  • 0.5 cup kalamata olives, pitted
  • crumbled feta (optional)


  1. Toss the tomatoes into a medium bowl.
  2. Using clean hands or a potato masher,  carefully smash the tomatoes to get some of their juices out.
  3. Add in the remaining ingredients, except for the pasta and give it all a stir.
  4. Set it aside for at least 10 minutes.
  5. This is a great time to cook your spaghetti noodles. Follow the package directions for al dente.
  6. Once the noodles are done, quickly drain them and toss them in a large bowl along with the tomato mixture.
  7. Divide evenly among four plates and serve immediately.
  8. Top with some crumbled feta if you're feeling feisty!
