Ingredients
 

  • 1 lb fresh tagliatelle
  • 1 medium onion
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 1/2 lb tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon fresh chopped oregano
  • 2 tablespoons white wine optional
  • 2 oz black olives
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 oz grated Parmesan cheese
  • Oregano leaves for garnish

Instructions

  • Finely chop the onion and crush the garlic. Heat the oil in a pan and gently fry the onion and garlic for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Immerse the tomatoes in a bowl of boiling water for 30 seconds, then cold for 1 minute, until cool enough to peel off the skins with your fingers. Chop the peeled tomatoes roughly.
  • Add the tomatoes, oregano and optional wine to the pan, then cover and cook gently for 20-25 minutes, until the tomatoes are quite soft.
  • Meanwhile, add the pasta to a pan of boiling salted water and cook according to the packet instructions - 3-4 minutes is usually enough.
  • Stone and chop the olives and stir them in with the tomatoes. Heat gently for 5 minutes and adjust the seasoning.
  • Drain the pasta and turn it into a serving dish. Pour over the tomato sauce, sprinkle over the Parmesan cheese, garnish with oregano and serve.
