Penne l'Arrabiata on CBC this morning

This morning I had the pleasure of presenting Penne l'Arrabiata CBC Weekend morning with Kerän Sanders. Yes, it was prerecorded as I just had a baby and was still in the hospital. All is well and this spicy pasta dish can be adjusted to your level of comfort. Cheese can be optional for vegan diets.


Penne l’Arrabiata

1 onion, finely chopped
Olive oil
1 cup good black olives, pitted and roughly chopped
2 cups tomato puree
3-4 cloves garlic, minced
1 tbs hot pepper flakes
½ - 1 cup red wine
Salt, to taste
½ tbs brown sugar
½ cup chevre
Cooked pasta

Saute onion until translucent. Add olives and cook for a couple of minutes. Add tomato, garlic and chillies. Add red wine to desired thickness of sauce. Stir in salt and brown sugar. Mix with pasta and drop in bits of chevre.
