Ingredients for Mediterranean Salsa in Spaghetti

  • 200 g Spaghetti
  • 300 g Ripe Tomatoes
  • 12 numbers Black Olives whole
  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil extra Virgin
  • 1.5 tbsp Red Wine Vinegar
  • 30 g Parmesan/ Cheddar Cheese
  • Handful Basil Leaves

How to make Mediterranean Salsa in Spaghetti

  • Cook the spaghetti in a pan of boiling salted water for 12-15 minutes or until al dente, which means that it should be soft enough to eat, but still have a bit of bite and firmness to it.
  • Chop the tomatoes. Crush the olives, then add the olives to the pile of tomatoes.
  • Pick the basil leaves, reserving the smaller ones for later and throw the rest onto the pile.
  • Peel, chop and add the garlic to the pile, then run your knife back and forth through all of the ingredients, chopping and mixing as you go, until you get a rough-looking salsa.
  • Add a good 10 - 15 ml of extra virgin olive oil, the vinegar and a pinch of sea salt and black pepper, and keep chopping and mixing until well combined.
  • Scoop out and reserve a cupful of the pasta cooking water, then drain the spaghetti in a colander.
  • Pop the spaghetti in a large bowl, scrape in the salsa dressing, adding a splash of the reserved cooking water, if needed, to make a lovely loose sauce.
  • Sprinkle over the reserved baby basil leaves and add a grating of cheese before serving.
