Ingredients

  • 350g spaghetti
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 red onion, finely chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, finely sliced
  • 400g tin cherry tomatoes
  • 4 tbsp small black olives, such as niçoise or kalamata

  • 2 tbsp torn fresh flatleaf parsley to garnish
  • Vegetarian Parmesan shavings to serve

Method

  1. Cook the spaghetti according to packet instructions until al dente.
