Halloumi pasta

It's another sunny Saturday morning, and I'm so happy to have a slow and quiet breakfast moment after I cleaned the flat a little bit. Soon we'll go to town to do some shopping, and then take the harbour bus to a lovely beer garden and street food market. This is all I need for today. Do you have some weekend plans?

During this summer I want to experiment more with halloumi pastas. I just love the contrast of soft pasta with firm fried halloumi with some added veggies. I made this pasta dish with of course halloumi and bell peppers and tomatoes as the main vegetables. It was a really nice mix.

Halloumi pasta


200 g halloumi
1 yellow bell pepper
6 medium tomatoes
1 onion
2 garlic cloves
Olive oil
Sea salt
Ground black pepper
Fresh basil leaves
Penne pasta


Chop the veg and start frying the onion in olive oil. Fry it until it’s soft and add the bell pepper.

After a while add the tomatoes, garlic and seasoning and let simmer under the lid.

Cut the halloumi into pieces and fry the pieces in a separate pan until they are crispy and golden brown on the surface. Then mix them to the sauce.

Cook the pasta, and add a little of the pasta cooking water to the sauce.

Mix everything and serve!

Have a great weekend!

  1. sounds very nice - I would not think to put halloumi with pasta but I can see it would work - we got along to the farmers market today but not too many weekend plans which is nice - next week is school holidays and there are quite a few plans so on the weekend we will relax and try and get some cleaning done!

    1. Visiting the farmers market is always good, and i can't wait to hear about your holiday activities. :)
