It was a bit of a hectic week for the Transposzing family and we all landed at home hungry at about the same time late this afternoon.
There being little time to try and come up with something for supper, I took a shot in the dark and came up with this meal made of stuff we had around the house. For a last minute thing, it turned out to be pretty good!
For anyone interested, here's a sketchy recipe:
1 pound of your favorite pasta (we had penne on the shelf)
1 can of Rotel diced tomatoes with garlic and onion, drained
a handful of black olives, sliced
a handful of green olives with pimientos halved or whole if they are small
a little handful of chopped fresh basil
a little handful of chopped fresh parsley
Salt and pepper to taste
(I'd love to have had a zuchini on hand, but alas I did not. Some chopped green or red bell pepper might have been nice, too).
Cook the pasta and drain it.
Chop the olives, basil and parsley (and zuchini and pepper, if you have them on hand!)
In a skillet or large saucepan, saute the tomatoes and (zuchini and pepper) with a little oil and salt and pepper. When they've broken up a bit, add the basil, parsley, olives. Get it all good and hot and add in the cooked pasta, tossing together and stirring until everything is hot.
On a non-fasting day, I'd be tempted to top with fresh grated parmesan cheese.
