A good recipe when you're watching your weight. It's still got loads of flavour though,

This was really good, I served it with ravioli that had a pesto and ricotta filling, and I used canned tomato's, and extra garlic, it smelt wonderful and lasted about 5 minutes.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat the oil and cook the garlic and onion gently until the onion is transparent.
  2. Add the tomatoes, paste, chillies, herbs and pepper and heat stirring until the tomatoes soften and release their juices.
  3. Add the olives, and heat until the sauce reaches desired consistency.
  4. Stir through the spinach until warmed through.
  5. Serve over any pasta you enjoy.
  6. I sometimes add maybe 200g of chicken breast strips at the stage where you fry the onions.
