Pasta with Tomatoes and Olives


This is a super fast post,
I don't think there is a name for this dish, I call it my vegetarian pasta, and it is so easy to make.

Is there a recipe in a book for it, i don't know, I once made it and my family loved it and this is soemthing I make often.


1 tin tomato chopped ( 450 gm)
2 garlic cloves funley chopped
Few tbsp of parsley
2 onions chopped
1 tbsp or more chillie flakes
10  black olives ( I sometimes add more) ( you can keep them whole or you can shlice them)
Couple of fresh basil leaves chopped ( If i don't have fresh ones at home i use dry)
Few tbsp of olive oil
Salt and peper to taste
Generous portion of paemsan cheese grated.

Add the oil in a pan and fry the onions and garlic, add chillie flakes, then add the tomatoes and a bit more water . Add parsly, basil leaves, salt and peper and cook for 15 minutes.
Add the olives.
Boil pasta in the mean time and serve the sauce on top of pasta .
Sprinle also generous portion of graed parmesan..
That is it and we jus tlove this.

Yummy Pasta, I love Olives in anything. Great lunch, simple and elegant. I wanted to make Pesto Pasta last weekend, didn't have the time. Saw "Ironman 2" y'day, not bad at all, S would enjoy it.

Got lot of chores to do today, see you soon!:)
