Nothing too adventurous going into the freezer this week, as it's still quite full of soups and other deliciousness like veggie burgers. Spaghetti alla Puttanesca's on the table today, with a very quick and easy recipe (made from what I actually have on hand).
The Sauce: Ingredients & Directions
just under a 1/4 cup of olive oil
1 cup chopped green onion
7 cloves minced garlic (or more...garlic is always delcious!)
[Cook the above ingredients until softer/ caramelized]
2 cans of chopped tomatoes (I like to pick two different types and combine them)
2 cups sliced Kalamata olives (I just cut them in half)
3 tablespoons tomato paste (just for a bit of thickness)
2 tablespoons capers
1 teaspoon of basil (although I usually modify this to taste)
2 teaspoons dried crushed red pepper flakes (or more should you like it spicy)
[Toss the rest of the ingredients in a pot and cook until done -- let the sauce reduce a bit so it's thicker]
The Pasta: Ingredients & Directions
Toss a bit of salt in the water and let it boil, then add a pasta of your choice. My favourite is spaghettini.
Super easy. Very tasty. I'm off to enjoy it now. :)
