Need to use 600g/21 oz. of Valbreso Feta before it expires 08/17/2014
For various reasons, I have been unable to use this as quickly as I had hoped. Any recipe suggestions beside a great big Greek salad?
I make a delicious summer pasta that includes feta. Caramelize some onions. Saute some peeled and deveined shrimp. Allow to cool and combine with seeded diced tomato. Chill a couple of hours. At mealtime prepare your favorite pasta. Toss hot pasta with cool shrimp mixture. Sprinkle liberally with crumbled feta cheese. If desired, sprinkle with finely diced fresh basil. Have additional bowl of crumbled feta on the table.
I find short sturdy pasta shapes work best (e.g. penne). I haven't included any quantities since this recipe can be adapted to suit your taste -- or need to use up feta cheese.
I haven't tried this yet but it looks great. http://www.101cookbooks.com/archives/...
Then there's baked feta that is divine. http://www.food.com/recipe/evs-baked-...
The quinoa chowder with spinach and feta on this site is delicious. I know it's too hot to think of soup but I wouldn't turn down a bowl of it as long as I the AC's working!
If you still have some you can't use up, freeze it. It would be better than letting it go to waste.
Make a bunch of spanikopita, and then freeze to enjoy whenever you want. I generally freeze them as triangles, not a tray. I have done both uncooked and cooked, and both seem to work well. For our household however, the cooked is easier for people to pull one or two, pop on the toaster oven rack, and in 10 minutes, you have a delicious spinach and cheese pie.
