Sun-dried tomato sauce for pasta

We had this sauce with spaghetti, but I think it would be really good with rotini or penne too. It doesn’t stick to the pasta quite as well as some sauces, so my thoughts are that it would be fun to have with a more robust pasta. However you serve it, it’s delicious! Fast and tasty…see what you think ;-)

Sun-Dried Tomato Sauce for Pasta

10-12 oz sun-dried tomatoes in oil, whole or chopped
Onion, chopped
3 cloves of garlic
1/3 c tomato paste
1 c white wine, dry

1 lb pasta

Salt and pepper
Flat-leaf parsley, chopped for generous garnish
4-6 oz feta cheese

Start the salted water boiling for the pasta. In a skillet, pour out some of the oil from the tomatoes and saute the onion and garlic for a few minutes until soft. Add the tomato paste and stir constantly while it cooks for a few minutes. Add the wine and tomatoes and simmer while the pasta cooks.

Drain the pasta and mound it up on plates or shallow bowls. Spoon on some sauce and crumble feta cheese over. Add parsley and serve.
