Greek Spaghetti

I am not a fan of Spaghetti with red sauce. As I have gotten older I just can not eat anything with tomatoes in it. When my husband makes spaghetti he always puts aside a serving or two of the spaghetti noodles undressed for me. I usually doctor the plain pasta with butter, garlic and shredded cheddar cheese. Today I decided to try something different. I had a lot of salad vegetables left over from our family picnic yesterday.
I dressed the spaghetti pasta with olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper. I mixed in chopped purple onions, sliced olives, diced green and yellow peppers. I then topped it with shredded cheddar cheese and some crumbled feta cheese.

When I made this dish I did not even know there was a dish named Greek Spaghetti. I started searching spaghetti recipes and found a recipe for Greek Spaghetti.  The recipe I found was a lot like what I made. But they added lots of other ingredients like tomatoes, meat and other vegetables. 

I really enjoyed having spaghetti for a change. What do you think? Does that look tasty? Do you like spaghetti or another pasta dish?


  1. I have never heard of Greek Spaghetti but it sure looks and sounds really good

  2. That Greek Spaghetti sounds delicious... We have alot of dishes with spaghetti or fettucini. There's a good one with fish --like salmon... I guess there are many dishes with spaghetti without tomato sauce.. Good Luck finding more --but I'll bet you have the Greek dish again!!!


  3. Pasta is one of my favorites. Like you, I don't care for the red sauce. Your recipe looks so delicious...always on the look out for new recipes using pasta and not red sauce - thanks!

  4. Sounds delicious. I don't mind red sauce but might have to try Greek spaghetti.

  5. This recipe sounds and looks really good. I don't like regular spaghetti either. I feel like I am choking it down when we make it but my family loves it. I am going to have to try this!
