Pappardelle with rose harissa, black olives and capers

This Ottolenghi pappardelle proves that mid-week meals don’t have to be boring. It takes 45 minutes and costs just under £10 for four servings.

Serves: 4

 

INGREDIENTS

2 tbsp olive oil

1 large onion, thinly sliced (220g)

3 tbsp rose harissa

400g cherry tomatoes, halved

55g pitted Kalamata olives, torn in half

20g baby capers

500g dried pappardelle pasta (or another wide, flat pasta)

15g parsley, roughly chopped

120g Greek-style yoghurt

salt

 

METHOD

Put the oil into a large sauté pan, for which you have a lid, and place on a medium high heat. Once hot, add the onion and fry for 8 minutes, stirring every once in a while, until soft and caramelised. Add the harissa, tomatoes, olives, capers and ½ teaspoon of salt and continue to fry for 3–4 minutes, stirring frequently, until the tomatoes start to break down.

Add 200ml of water and stir through. Once boiling, reduce the heat to medium low, cover the pan and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove the lid of the sauce and continue to cook for 4–5 minutes, until the sauce is thick and rich. Stir in 10g of the parsley and set aside.

Meanwhile, fill a large pot with plenty of salted water and place on a high heat. Once boiling, add the pappardelle and cook according to the packet instructions, until al dente. Drain well.

Return the pasta to the pot along with the harissa sauce and 1/8 teaspoon of salt. Mix together well, then divide between four shallow bowls. Serve hot, with a spoonful of yoghurt and a final sprinkle of parsley.
