A super quick sauce for pasta. If you are using dried pappardelle you can make the sauce while the pasta cooks.


Ingredients (serves 1)
75 g paparadelle
1 tbsp olive oil
1 large clove of garlic, grated or finely chopped
6-9 (depending on size) fresh baby tomatoes, quartered
6 pitted black olives, roughly chopped
50 ml white wine
30g Cheddar cheese, grated
Fresh basil leaves

  1. Cook the pasta in boiling salted water until it is to your liking.
  2. While the pasta is cooking add the olive oil to a pan and fry the garlic gently for one minute.
  3. Add the tomatoes, olives and white wine. Simmer for a few minutes and then add the cheese plus a little of the pasta water. Simmer until the cheese melts.
  4. Just before serving add some torn basil leaves and stir through the sauce.
