Sauce Puttanesca and Pasta Mediterranee
Today we made a quick and simple pasta sauce for lunch in its two variations: Sauce Puttanesca and Pasta Mediterranee. Both were so delicious and came together very fast!
Charlie minced garlic like a pro.
Diced tomatoes, tomato paste, a few sliced kalamata olives, and the minced garlic went into a pot.
Everything simmered for a while then I added some red chili pepper flakes and cracked black pepper. In this moment I realized there was no salt or onion in this dish. A rarity!
Here's our pasta, all steamy and ready to get sauced.
I topped mine with feta cheese to make pasta mediterranee. Charlie topped his with parmesan to make sauce putanesca. And there you have it folks, two delicious afternoon pasta dishes!
