Spaghetti with capers and green olives tomato sauce


This is the vegan recipe for March (I procrastinated it until last minute). It is a simple pasta dish but the sauce is everything here, delicious, flavorful and rich.


I don’t really like capers but here, the flavor is not too tough and it goes really well with everything else. I bought a basil marinara sauce but you can use plain marinara sauce if you have that on hand, no big deal.


It is a perfect combo for a simple dinner, you cook the pasta while the sauce is simmering and it’s all done in no time.


Spaghetti with capers and green olives tomato sauce (serves 2-3) :

  • 200g pasta
  • 400ml marinara sauce (with basil for me)
  • 100g green olives
  • 20g capers
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper

Cook your pasta.

Mince the garlic and sauté it in a pan with olive oil. Add the marinara sauce, coarsely chopped green olives, minced capers. Season to taste and simmer it for 15 minutes.

Serve with pasta and add a little bit of parmesan.
