Sweet&spicy tomato pasta sauce with black olives, garlic&chili!


I’m making it as we speak 🙂 it’s dead easy, delicious and to be done in 10 min, while your pasta is cooking. what you’re going to need is:

20 black olives-pitted

1 shallot

2 cloves of garlic

1/4 tsp of rosemary

1/3 tsp of thyme

1/2 tsp of chili paste (or dried chili flakes)

salt,pepper,sugar to taste

12 sweet,ripe cocktail tomatoes (the bigger type)- quartered

handful of fresh basil

some fresh mozarella- diced

pasta of your choice.

preparation: – boil the water for the pasta, toss the pasta in, and while it’s cooking- prepare the sauce.

fry off the shallots with garlic on some olive oil. add the olives- I slice half of them, and throw few whole ones for the visual effect. throw in d cut tomatoes.season with herbs,salt,pepper…if you think your tomatoes are acidic, balance it out with some sugar. add chili paste. stir. let it simmer for about 5-7 min. let the tomatoes ooze their juices. you can add about 100 mls of water to create more sauce. toss the cooked pasta with the sauce.turn the heat off,add the roughly chopped basil and mozarella.toss, throw onto a plate.( decorate with basil  if you have the time and patience :P) ! can’t beat it!
