Did you know that olives are popular in Spain? The growing conditions are ideal, which makes the abundant vegetable show up in so many traditional Spanish recipes.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 14 cup butter
  • 2 -3 small onions, chopped (about 1-1/2 cups)
  • 8 ounces angel hair pasta, broken into 3- to 4-inch pieces (capellini)
  • 1 (14 1/2 ounce) can beef broth
  • 13 cup water
  • 5 ounces jar salad-style olives, drained (which is 1 cup)
  • 14 teaspoon pepper


  1. In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium-high heat and saute the onions for 2 to 3 minutes or until soft. Add the capellini and allow it to brown, stirring occasionally. When lightly browned, add the remaining ingredients; mix well. Reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer, stirring occasionally, for about 10 minutes or until all the liquid is absorbed.

This is a very simple side dish. I like food that is seasoned with other food. In this case, no salt is needed because of the salt from the olives.
