Cooking pasta with feta cheese and vegetables:

Step 1: .

Fill the middle pan halfway with ordinary cold water and put on a large fire. To make the liquid boil faster, cover the container with a lid. Immediately after this, pour a couple of pinches of salt here and mix everything thoroughly with a tablespoon. Then carefully spread the pasta here, slightly reduce the heat and wait for the water to boil again. Immediately after that, boil the components exactly as much as indicated on the package. Typical pasta cooking times are approximately 15-20 minutes depending on the type of flour. Do not forget from time to time to stir everything with improvised inventory so that the components do not stick to the bottom of the pan. Important: in 1-2 minutes until ready, turn off the burner and pour the contents of the container into the sink through a colander. By the way, in order not to get burned, we hold the pan with the help of kitchen gloves.

Now put a colander with pasta under a stream of cold running water and let them cool slightly. This must be done so that the components do not stick together while we are preparing other products for the dish. In the end, leave the container aside so that excess liquid from pasta glass.

Step 2:.

Pour green peas into a deep plate and leave aside to reach room temperature. In parallel with this, we put on a big fire a small pan filled to half with ordinary cold water. Attention: so that the liquid boils faster, do not forget to cover the container with a lid. Then pour the thawed peas here, mix everything well with a tablespoon and cook the component for several minutes (this must be done to make it soft and tender). Now turn off the burner, and peas, holding the pan with kitchen tacks, recline into a sieve. Add ice cubes here and temporarily set aside so that the component gradually cools.

Step 3:.

Rinse the spinach thoroughly under running water, shake off excess liquid and put it on a clean plate to dry. Important: leaves can not be chopped with a knife, as they are already softened and dispersed during cooking.

Step 4:.

We wash the basil well under running warm water, shake off excess liquid and put it on a cutting board. Using a knife, chop the greens and immediately pour it into a free plate.

Step 5:.

Pour pine nuts into the pan and put on medium heat. Now fry the components, constantly stirring with a wooden spatula, until a soft golden color and immediately turn off the burner, and set the container aside.

Step 6:.

Spread feta cheese in a deep bowl and use a fork to knead to the state of small pieces.

Step 7:.

We spread the garlic on a cutting board and lightly press down with the tip of a knife. Then remove the husk and rinse the cloves under running water.
Put the components back on a flat surface and chop finely. Pour the chopped garlic in a clean saucer and leave it aside for a while.

Step 8:.

Pour black pepper into a hand mortar and crush peas with a pestle. We do this until we get the powder. By the way, such seasoning in dishes is much more aromatic than if we had already used ready-made bags.

Step 9:.

Pour yogurt, olive oil into a blender bowl, and pour chopped garlic, freshly ground black pepper and salt to taste. Add here 2 tablespoons green peas and grind everything at high speed until a homogeneous mass is formed. That's it, dressing dressing is ready!

Step 10:.

Pour into a clean dry pan 1 tablespoon olive oil and put on a small fire. When the contents of the container are well warmed up, add the spinach here and leave it alone for a while, so that it softens and spills. Immediately after this, pour a little ground chili pepper to it, gently mix everything with a wooden spatula and remove from heat.
Continuing to cook the dish, put the remaining green peas in the pan, and then pasta. Important: after each component, do not forget to mix everything thoroughly with a tablespoon until smooth. Now put the container back on fire and let it warm up slightly. At the end we turn off the burner and, without delay, invite everyone to the dining table.

Step 11:.

Pour the warm pasta mixture onto a large plate, spread the chopped basil and feta cheese on top. Immediately start in small portions (so as not to stratify) to introduce yogurt and simultaneously mix everything with a tablespoon. At the end, sprinkle the dish with fried pine nuts and begin to sprinkle everything in their portioned dishes. By the way, a glass of dry red wine is ideal for such an insanely tasty meal.
Bon appetit to all!

Recipe Tips:

- You can use homemade yogurt to make dressing sauce. Believe me, then the dish will turn out much more tender than if you added the purchased milk component to it;

- you can add pasta of various shapes and varieties to the dish, except for long spaghetti, as they are too thin and uncomfortable to eat;

- Feta cheese soaked in herbs and saline can be put in the filling. Then in this option, do not forget to try all the ingredients for taste, so as not to overdo it with salt.
