Pasta with Fresh Tomato Sauce and Olives


I have had much fewer tomatoes this year; the cool, rainy summer has not been conducive to a good harvest. So, I have not been making as much tomato sauce to freeze as I typically do. Instead, I have been making various versions of pasta with fresh tomato sauce. And I am on a tear with them, hence the earlier post on Pasta with Tomatoes, Green Beans and Feta.

I was able to use two other ingredients from my garden in this, onions and garlic.  I am loving having my own garlic to use!

I had two ingredients I wanted to use tonight, Spinach, Basil and Garlic Linguini and the truffle vinegar I bought in Rhinebeck, NY last month. The linguini was one of my purchases at the farmer’s market I went to in Chicago, it is by Pasta Pappone, a local artisinal pasta company.

Pasta with Fresh Tomato Sauce and Olives

1 1/2 to 2 lbs fresh tomatoes (from the garden)

1/2 small onion, chopped fine (from the garden)

3 cloves garlic, minced (from the garden)

1 – 2 Tbsp olive oil

1 tsp truffle vinegar (or 2 tsp red wine or balsamic vinegar)

sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

8 oz pasta

Parmigiano reggiano, for grating

Directions

Cut the tomatoes into about 1/2″-sized pieces. Place in a large pasta bowl.
