Spaghetti in Spicy Pomodoro with Black Olives

Spaghetti In Spicy Pomodoro with Black Olives

This recipe is one of my favorites. Everytime I eat in this particular restaurant, I make sure that I order their version of pomodoro, which is a bit spicy. The aroma of olives & spiciness of jalapeños makes me want to order for more. The taste of olive is elegant & strong, a bit bitter yet gentle. It goes perfectly well with jalapeños & parmesan cheese. Knowing that pomodoro is very simple & basic, so I decided to cook my version at home & glad that it did great. The herbs enhances the taste of the sauce, plus putting generous amount of black olives & parmesan makes it richer & savory in taste. Perfect match for roast chicken with mushroom sauce & potato salad. Yummy!
