Red Gold Tomatoes Giveaway & Greek Spaghetti

 It's time for another giveaway!
Make sure you visit the Red Gold Web site.
They have a lot of fun stuff going on over there.
Red Gold Tomatoes contacted me to ask if I would do a taste test for them.
I love taste tests!
This is perfect timing for canned tomatoes.
With it being the off season for fresh tomatoes, you can't get any fresher
than Red Gold.
Open a can of these beauties and all you smell and see is fresh.....
Red Gold is my canned tomatoes of choice.
100% natural is all I need to see.
 I wanted to create a recipe that focused on tomatoes.
Anyone can make and eat chili,
but my focus was more on the Greek cuisine. 
So I set out to create a Greek dish.
And with this dish, it can be enjoyed warm or cold. 
Eat this warm with a seasoned piece of chicken, and use the 
left-overs as a salad next to a panini.
I love versatile!

Greek Spaghetti

1 (14.5 oz.) Petite diced Red Gold Tomatoes, drained
1/2 c. Kalamata olives, pitted
1/4 lb. feta cheese w/Mediterranean herbs
3 TBS drained green olives, sliced
2 TBS dried parsley
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. fresh ground black pepper
3/4 lb whole grain spaghetti
5-6 TBS olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced

In a large bowl, combine the tomatoes, olives, feta, parsley, salt, and pepper.
In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook the spaghetti until done. Drain.
Meanwhile, in a medium frying pan, heat the olive oil over moderately low heat. Add the garlic and cook, stirring for 1 minute. Add the cooked pasta and the garlic oil to the tomato mixture and toss. Serve immediately. 

Thank you Red Gold for making this recipe excellent and tomato approved.
