Gluten free pasta preparation

1. Prepare the ingredients

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Peel then chop garlic. Cut cherry tomatoes in half. Crumble feta.

2. Marinate the tomatoes

Combine tomatoes and garlic in a large bowl with ¼ cup olive oil. Season with salt and pepper, and set aside.

3. Cook the pasta

Add pasta to boiling water and cook until al dente, about 8 minutes. Drain pasta, reserving ½ cup pasta water.

4. Combine the ingredients

Toss cooked pasta with tomato mixture.

5. Add the cheese

Add feta to pasta along with ¼ cup reserved pasta water. Toss until cheese melts slightly and sauce coats pasta. Add more pasta water if needed.

Toss in arugula and season with salt and pepper to taste. Enjoy!
