Spaghetti alle Olive e Pomodoro (Spaghetti with Olives and Tomatoes)

Spaghetti alle Olive e Pomodoro (Spaghetti with Olives and Tomatoes) Recipe. Diabetic Friendly, low carb recipe from Diabetic Gourmet Magazine. DiabeticGourmet.com

When fresh tomatoes are abundant in the summer and fall, I will use them. Because this is a primary sauce, I use canned tomatoes when fresh are no longer available. You may omit the red pepper for milder flavor or substitute Kalamata olives for the capers and black olives. Chef Antonio.

  • 16 ounces Dreamfields Spaghetti
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon red onion, chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon hot pepper flakes
  • 1/4 cup white wine or chicken broth
  • 1 can (28-ounces) whole peeled tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup sliced black olives
  • 2 tablespoons capers, drained
  • 1 tablespoon fresh basil, chopped (or 1 teaspoon dried)
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese


  1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook garlic, onion and pepper flakes 5 minutes or until sizzling hot. Add wine or chicken broth and cook until liquid has evaporated, about 3 minutes.
  2. Drain tomatoes and break up. Add into skillet along with olives and cook 5 minutes. Add oregano and basil, cook on medium for 10 minutes, stirring frequently.
  3. Prepare pasta according to package directions; drain well. Toss pasta with sauce and Parmesan cheese. Serve immediately.

    Using fresh ingredients, like herbs, increases the intensity of the flavor. This basic tomato sauce may be made ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator for up to 48 hours or freezer up to 2 months.
