Greek Style Pasta

Opa!! Just to mix it up a bit I came up with this pasta recipe. It's very simple! So, if you're wondering , "to cook or not to cook, that is the question", try this.

1/2 sliced onion
3 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 c olive oil
1 handful chopped basil
2 or 3 tomatoes, cut up
1 small can black olives
1 small can garbanzo beans (optional)
8 oz crumbled feta cheese
pasta water
1/2 box spaghetti or penne pasta (I like both)

Start to cook the pasta in boiling water. Saute in large fry pan the onions and garlic in half of the olive oil. Turn heat to low and add the tomatoes, olives and basil. Stir and add some pasta water (about 3 serving spoons). Drain and add the pasta, remaining oil and feta cheese. Mix well and serve. Opa! Wasn't that quick?
