1. Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil. Cook pasta according to packet instructions, or until al dente. Drain and briefly rinse, return to saucepan.

2. Slice red onion and add to a frypan with 2 tbsp olive oil. Cook over medium heat for 5-6 minutes, or until starting to caramelise. Add crushed garlic.

3. Halve cherry tomatoes and grate (or dice) zucchini. Add to pan along with 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar. Cook over medium heat for 8 minutes, or until blistered.

4. Heat a large pan over medium-high heat. Rub steaks with 1 tbsp oil, 1 tsp oregano, salt and pepper. Cook for 3-4 minutes on each side, or until cooked to your liking. Set aside on a chopping board and slice when cool enough to handle.

5. Add tomato sugo to the pan with tomatoes along with spinach and olives. Pour over the pasta and toss until well combined. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

6. Serve sliced oregano steaks with a side of tomato spirals. Top with crumbled feta cheese and chopped chives.
