An intense tomato sauce, perked up with capsicum, spices and herbs plays host to perfectly cooked farfalle, which makes the ensemble look very attractive indeed. Dotted with black olives and seasoned with red chilli flakes, the Olive and Tomato Pasta becomes all the more tempting when garnished with grated cheese. As far as possible, prepare this dish just before serving to enjoy the maximum flavour and aroma of the spices. When it’s not possible to do so, keep the pasta and sauce ready in advance, but assemble and garnish it just before serving.
