Early dinner tonight… so good I had to share!

I totally had a moment this evening… I spent most of the afternoon cleaning up my apartment (like I’m talking thoroughly cleaning), and so when I got to the fridge I was already pretty hungry from the previous three rooms I had just cleaned. The fact that Sean and I are leftover fiends is always beneficial, but today it took the cake.

When I opened the freezer, I discovered a tupperware full of one of my absolute favourite dishes – Tri-Coloured Noodles, Feta Cheese & Tomatoes! If the name alone doesn’t make you drool, then you need to try it to experience why it is one of the best dishes in the Heroic Health arsenal.

I originally got this recipe from something that my mom tried to make one day when I was a kid. I remember that I used to pick out and only eat the feta cheese (cow’s milk, at that point) and the white noodles. Years went by before I fully grasped the awesomeness that is this dish.

This is best served with garlic crusty bread on the side. Enjoy!

  • 3 medium cloves garlic

  2. While noodles are cooking, chop up tomatoes and onions and put in another pot. Add garlic and basil. Cook on low for about half an hour
  3. Pour noodles in with tomato mixture. Add feta cheese and lemon juice. Stir to combine well
