Pasta, Pasta, Pasta

I could really live on this stuff. There are so many ways to make it taste different and it is so affordable too. :)

Last night I made the Ziti with Ricotta and Vegetables for dinner from my previous post and it was soooooo delish!!!! The entire family loved it. It was so easy anyone can do it.

So tonight, I'm making this with a little salad and a little garlic bread....

Linguine with Two-Olive Marina

2 teaspoons of olive oil
2/3 cup of chopped onion
2 teaspoons minced garlic
3/4 cup of sliced pitted green olives (about 15)
1 (2-1/4 ounce) can of sliced ripe olives, drained
1/4 teaspoon of sugar
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon of dried oregano
1/3 cup of dry white wine
1 (28 ounce) can of crushed tomatoes
1 box of cooked linguine
3/4 cup of parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons of chopped fresh parsley

1. Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add onion and saute 3 minutes. Stir in garlic and saute 1 minute. Add olives and saute 30 seconds. Stir in sugar, red pepper, black pepper & oregano, cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Add wine and cook 30 seconds. Stir in tomatoes and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 30 minutes.

2. Cook pasta, serve with sauce and sprinkle with cheese and parsley.
