Plum Tomato and Olive Pasta

Quick Mid-Week Dinner 

Sometimes when I get home from my day I feel so tired that I could just go to bed, and skip dinner all together. Don’t do that, it doesn’t need to be that difficult; having some necessities on hand will make mid-week dinners a lot more delicious and a lot less painful. This recipe is very simple, but don’t let that fool it because it is absolutely delicious. 


  • green pepper – sliced 
  • onion – chopped 
  • olive oil – (tbs)
  • no salt added plum tomatoes 
  • garlic clove
  • olives
  • olive paste (tbs)
  • capers 
  • jalapeño peppers (optional) 
  • whole wheat pasta (your choice)


Cook pasta according to directions,
Soften onions and green peppers in a heated deep skillet with olive oil. Add garlic, olives, olive paste, capers, and jalapeño peppers. Cook a few minutes, so flavors blend.
