And another simple pasta. This time with olives. I told you I was going to go for simple for a while!
Anyway, when talking about simple pasta, this is one of my favorite. Together with amatriciana, arrabbiata, puttanesca and tuna pasta, olive pasta is one of the most common variations on the simple tomato sauce pasta. It can be cooked in only a few minutes and it is full of flavor.
If you like olives, you will love this pasta. I
like love olives and this pasta has saved the day on many occasions. In fact, as you can see from the picture I had it on multiple occasions lately. It is so quick to make and you really only need a couple of ingredients.
Oh for this pasta to turn out right you have to use good olives. Don’t use olives from a can! Go to your favorite Greek or middle eastern store or to some other place with a great olve bar and get some oven roasted black olives (with no added flavors or herbs and possibly pitted) and some green olives (again with no added flavors or herbs and pitted).
