This dish was ready by the time the pasta was cooked. All I did was sauteing some chopped onions in olive oil, add 1 garlic clove, 2 tomatoes seeded and chopped and 2 purple olives, pitted and chopped.
When the pasta (1 cup of penne) was done, I added some of the pasta water to the sauce along with the penne. Stirred in some chopped fresh basil from my window box and seasoned.
Not bad at all! It was very tasty, specially with the addition of grated cheese. And I even made a little basil garnish!
