Pasta with Sauce of Tomatoes, Artichokes, and Olives.
Sundays at our house are typically known as Pasta Sundays. I usually like to experiment with different types of pasta and sauce for our traditional Sunday dinner. I know all the pasta dishes I've posted on here look the same, but they are all unique and different. Like snowflakes. Or people.
Tonight's pasta delight was:
"Corn-Rigatoni with Sauce of Tomatoes, Artichokes, and Olives."
This is what I did:
1/2 onion, chopped
3 garlic cloves, crushed
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can tomato sauce
1 can artichoke hearts, chopped
1/2 can Trader Joe's green pitted olives, sliced
Spices of your choice, to taste (I used red pepper flakes, lemon-pepper, garlic salt, oregano, salt and pepper)
1 package pasta (I used corn pasta)
While the pasta is cooking, make the delicious tomato sauce.
First, heat two tablespoons of olive oil in pan and saute the onions and garlic until slightly browned.
Second, add the tomatoes and tomato sauce, spices, artichokes, and olives.
Let simmer on low heat while the pasta finishes cooking.
When pasta is done, serve all together with a side of salad! Done! Dinner is THAT simple. But oh, so delicious.
