I made this dish today and it was so easy and yummy that I had to share.
1 14 oz. can of diced tomatoes, undrained
1 onion, diced
3 garlic cloves, finely diced
2 Tbs. fresh basil or 1 tsp. dried
1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes
1/4 cup of roughly diced pitted kalamata olives
2 Tbs. capers
1 Tbs. olive oil
1 package of pasta
Heat the olive oil in a heavy sauce pan, then add onion. Cook until transparent, adding garlic, capers and pepper flakes for the last minute of cooking. Add tomatoes, basil, and olives. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer and cook, covered, for at least an hour.
Cook pasta according to package instructions, drain, then add to the sauce. Mix together well and serve. This is a vegan dish if you do not top it with parmesan, but I do like the cheese on mine.
Please excuse my horrible photo, but I hope you enjoy this dish.
