Tangy Spaghetti with Olives, Spinach and Dried Tomatoes

Tangy Spaghetti with Olives, Spinach and Dried Tomatoes

[Unpaid Advertising]

The idea for this dish isn’t mine. I had it a couple of times at the café chain ALEX. A couple of days ago I had a craving for this dish, but no ALEX near me. So I made them myself. That isn’t only cheaper, but goes way faster.

This noodle dish is perfect for weeknights when time and desire to cook are short. Preparing the sauce takes as long as the noodles take to cook. And if you use the thin spaghetti like I did, it only takes 5 minutes.

If you like, sprinkle some nutritional yeast flakes or cashew parmesan over your spaghetti.

I wish you fun cooking and enjoy your quick meal!



Spaghetti with Olives, Spinach and Dried Tomatoes
Gang/Type: Main Dish
Ergibt/Yield: 2 servings
  • 200 g (7 oz) spaghetti
  • 2 tbsp pine nuts

  • 1 - 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 - 4 pieces dried tomato
  • 2 hands full baby spinach

  1. Cook the noodles in salty water until firm to the bite. Slice the olives, cube the dried tomatoes and press the garlic. In a non-stick pan toast the pine nuts and set aside.

  2. Heat the oil in a pan and sauté olives, tomatoes and garlic in it and fry for 2 - 3 minutes. Add the spinach and let wilt. Then add pine nuts and spaghetti and stir in. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

  3. Arrange the noodles on two plates and sprinkle over nutritional yeast flakes or cashew parmesan, if you like.

    Kleine Frage:
    Unter dem zweiten Foto ist die Rede von einer schnell zubereiteten Soße.
    Leider finde ich keinen Hinweis auf die Art der Zubereitung oder der Zutaten.
    Ich werde uns trotzdem versuchen das Gericht herzustellen.
    Dir Fotos versprechen jedenfalls ein genussvolles Essen
