DIRECTIONS

  • Place the olives and garlic in the bowl of a food processor, and pulse for 10 seconds.
  • Add the parsley and thyme, and pulse again for 10 seconds.
  • With the motor running, add the olive oil through the feed tube in a slow stream. The sauce should look finely minced and have some texture to it.
  • Transfer the sauce to a bowl, and stir in the salt and black pepper.
  • Store the sauce in a jar in the refrigerator. Bring the jar to room temperature when ready to use.
  • After removing some of the sauce, pour a thin layer of olive oil over the top to prevent air from getting in and allowing bacteria to grow.
  • Variation:
  • Add julienned roasted sweet red and yellow peppers after mixing the pasta with the sauce and a few coarsely chopped black oil-cured olives for color and contrast.
