Ingredients

8 Ounces Penne Pasta

1 Tablespoon Olive Oil, Plus More As Needed

1 Sweet Onion, Sliced Thinly

1 Pint Cherry Tomatoes

1 Tablespoon Tomato Paste

¼ Cup Pitted Green Olives

4 Ounces Crumbled Feta

Fresh Basil For Garnish

Salt And Pepper To Taste

Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. When the water boils, add the pasta and cook according to package instructions. Reserve 1 cup of pasta cooking water, drain the pasta, return to the pot, and drizzle with olive oil to prevent sticking. 
  2. Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring regularly, until starting to caramelize, about 7 minutes. Add the cherry tomatoes and cook for another 5-7 minutes, until they start to burst open. Season with salt and pepper. 
  3. Turn off the heat and stir the cooked pasta into the skillet, along with the tomato paste and as much pasta water as is necessary to dissolve the tomato paste and make a silky sauce. Stir in the olives and feta. Garnish with fresh basil and serve immediately.
