Aug 28: Double Double; Pasta with Fresh Tomato Sauce and Feta


Foodie Philip was in Burbank so ate his normal Double Double for $4.26.


Greg has been wanting to try a fresh tomato sauce for a long time, but not one that was similar to a gazpacho. This recipe was a winner! Full of fresh tomato flavor, a good texture – not too liquid – and likely to be versatile (as we have about half left).

The great flavor was, no doubt, enhanced by the heirloom tomatoes we used. We dropped the basil (because Philip is not a fan) and substituted feta for the cheese.

We’ll get four serves from the tomato sauce.

  • Heirloom tomatoes were $5.28 or $1.32 per serve
  • Garlic and seasonings add 25c
  • The Valpresso feta was $9.99 for the tin, but we used 1/6 over two serves, or 83c per serve
  • The tickler radiatore pasta was $1.99 or $1.00 per serve.

Dinner tonight was fresh, tasty and a great summer evening meal, for $3.40 per serve.
