Last week I went to the deli and ordered "half" a pound of dry salami. The girl must have been in her own world and thought I said "have" a pound. So, I ended up with a pound of salami. What was I gonna do with all that? I mean, I love salami but that's a bit much. So here's what I came up with. You could use bacon or some other type of meat that you know will crisp up nicely. The feta adds a nice tang to the dish. I like Canadian feta but you can use Greek or any other kind you like. Some are saltier than others so I wouldn't add salt to this recipe.
1 375g box of whole wheat pasta
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/3lb dry salami
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon dried oregano
2 tablespoons olive oil
4oz feta cheese, crumbled
Cook pasta according to package directions.
In a nonstick pan, fry garlic and salami in oil over medium heat until salami is crispy. Sprinkle in pepper and oregano and give it a stir. Add drained pasta and olive oil then stir in feta. Serve hot. It's also good cold as a salad but then the salami won't be as crisp.
