Spaghetti In A Light Olive and Tomato Sauce

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Sandra Silver

This dish has a fresh-from-the-garden taste. A piquant bite of olives. A good crunch of garlic. A sweet smooth of tomatoes!

Most fine. I rinsed the green olives to get some of the salt out, and used a 14oz can of tomatoes: it being that time of year. This was the first time I have ever tried pecorino cheese, and it turns out to be made from sheep’s milk. But, hey, Italian sheep. My wife found pecorino to be too strong for her taste, however, the rest of us loved it. Next time I will have some parmesan out too. A fast, easy to make pasta, worthy of a restaurant.
