Pasta Putenesca Sauce
From: Kenneth A. McCandless

serve this with a gemelli or rigatoni

  • 1/2 c. green olives, chopped
  • 1/2 c. black olives, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1 large can plum tom's. (crushed between fingers)
  • olive oil
  • black pepper
  • salt only if needed
Heat olive oil (I use about 2 T.) in saute pan (note that good olive oil is really crucial for flavor here).
Add garlic, cook about 2 min., or until just turning color.
Add tomatoes, cook for about 5 min.
Add olives, cook another 3 min. or so.
Saute briefly after combining with cooked (al dente, please!) pasta.

This sounds really basic, but some of the best foods are just that! Enjoy!
