Pasta with Tomato & Feta Sauce

One of my favourite dishes which I make once a week - pasta with tomato sauce, feta cheese and a lot of fresh pepper. Just cook the pasta and in the meantime make the sauce out of: a can of crashed tomatoes, some garlic, some spices, some herbs (oregano and basil). Cook it for a while and add a 6 oz (200g) package of feta cheese. Cook it for a while. Add the pasta to the sauce and mix it. Taste it - spice it if it's still not spicy enough. That's all - a 15 minutes dish ;)

Preserved Zucchini & Bell Pepper (Winter Lecso)

I love the idea of lecso, the Hungarian dish with onions, bell pepper and zucchini. In the Fall I make a few jars for the Winter - let's be honest, the vegetables in the Winter are never "fresh" the way I think we should eat them. So I make lecso in when the vegetables have their season.

Preserving vegetables is a great deal for having some of them for the Winter time. Here are some pictures from two different years I was cooking and later preserving lecso.
