One of the easiest pasta recipes to make for any meal.I had bought a fresh batch of tomatoes this morning and decided to cook this one.I went ahead to add some beautiful corn kernels to give it a fresh twist and it turned out just fine.
Pasta Arrabiata with Black Olives
Chopped good quality tomatoes : 4
Tomato puree : 2 tbsp
Onion diced finely: 1
Garlic diced finely: 3 cloves
Olive oil: 3 tbsp
Dried or fresh oregano: 1 tbsp
Dried or fresh basil: 1 tbsp
Handful of black olives pitted and halved
Handful of corn kernels
Freshly grated parmigiana
Salt and pepper to taste
Pasta of your liking(I used fusilli)
Saute the onion/garlic and oregano in a hot pan with the olive oil till translucent /browning.Add the tomatoes,corn, puree,salt and black pepper and turn down the heat.Stir and make sure the tomatoes do not stew which would turn this watery.Add basil before serving and turn off the heat.Boil the pasta in a pot of water according to package instructions.I usually use a pot with generous water to drown the pasta and add the pasta to rapidly boiling water with 1tbsp of salt.This adds more flavor and prevents pasta from sticking.Six minutes tops and pasta is ready.Drain the pasta and toss it into the sauce.Serve hot with grated cheese.
