  • 4 oz. feta cheese, crumbled
  • 1 [14-oz.] can of diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup tomato passata
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 red chili pepper, seeded and minced (if you want it extra spicy leave in the seeds)

  • 1 tbsp olive oil

Tip:

If jarred passata is not available in your area, a good substitute is a combination of one-part tomato paste mixed with two parts water. (For this recipe, 1/3 cup tomato paste mixed with 2/3 cups water). You can also use a jarred sauce, but it is likely to have additional seasonings that could affect the overall flavor of your dish.
