  • 2 large tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon sliced black olives from a jar
  • 4-5 anchovies

Cook the pasta until al dente, or according to the packet instructions. Drain and transfer to to a lunch box.

Chop the tomatoes really finely, making sure that all the juice doesn’t run away. Add the tomatoes and their juice to the cooked pasta/

Add the olives, anchovies, chopped onion, shredded spinach and mixed herbs and mix together well.

Crumble over the feta.

Add salt and pepper to taste - but remember that the anchovies and feta are already quite salty, so don’t over do it.
