A fast and tasty sauce for a pasta supper.
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 3⁄4 cup finely chopped onion
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons minced drained bottled pepperoncini peppers (Italian pickled peppers)
- 1⁄4 cup olive oil
- 1⁄3 cup dry white wine
- 1 (32 ounce) can plum tomatoes, chopped
- 2 (5 ounce) jars marinated artichoke hearts, drained well and halved
- 1⁄2 cup chopped pitted kalamata olive
- 1⁄3 cup minced fresh parsley
- In a large skillet cook garlic, onion and peperoncini in oil over moderately-low heat, stirring, until onion is softened, add wine and boil 3-5 minutes, or until wine is almost evaporated.
- Add tomatoes and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 20 minutes, or until the sauce is thickened.
- Stir in artichokes and olives and simmer sauce for 5 minutes and stir in parsley and season to taste.
- Enough for 1 lb of pasta, such as penne.
this was great! the sauce was spicy enough from the perreoncinis and the olives were great in it. i added fresh basil, very tasty
I was expecting more of a sauce, but as written this was pretty solid and chunky, so I added a can of tomato sauce at the end so that I could serve it over spaghetti. I found the number of artichokes to be way too high in comparison to the other ingredients. If I make this again, I think I will use half as many artichokes and add a pinch of sugar. It was a good start to play around with, but just didn't "wow" me.
Easy to make; well flavored with all the things I like - pepperoncini, artichoke hearts, and olives. I served this over leftover sliced chicken and pasta.
