Nutrition Facts
  • 2 tbsp (30 mL) canola oil
  • 2 small onions, diced
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp (2.5 mL) red pepper flakes
  • 4 medium tomatoes, diced

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C).

  3. Add the tomato, oregano and pepper and simmer until the sauce thickens, about 5 - 10 minutes. Remove from heat and mix in the fresh herbs and Feta cheese. Place mixture in an 8 x 8-inch (20 x 20 cm) baking dish.
