Ingredients

  • 1 lb whole wheat spaghetti
  • olive oil
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • crushed red pepper (to taste)
  • 1 pint grape/cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 can black olives, halved or chopped

Directions

  • Directions:
  • Boil pasta as directed on package (usually takes 7 minutes)
  • In a skillet or wok large enough to hold the spaghetti, add about 1/4- 1/3 cup olive oil and heat until it shimmers. (I dont measure the oil- I just pour until there's a thin coating on the bottom of the pan)
  • Once the oil is heated, add the garlic and saute until fragrant, but not burnt.
  • Add the tomatoes and continue to saute the mixture, crushing some of the tomatoes lightly.
  • When the pasta has 2 minutes left to cook, add in the olives to the oil/tomato mixture.
  • When the pasta is done cooking, drain and toss in the skillet with sauce.
  • Serve and enjoy!
