Ingredients

  • 1 pound uncooked spaghetti
  • 2 cups chopped seeded peeled tomato (about 5 medium tomatoes)
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) crumbled ricotta salata or feta cheese
  • 1/3 cup chopped pitted kalamata olives
  • 1/4 cup capers
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons extravirgin olive oil
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced

Preparation

  1. Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt and fat. Drain.
  2. Combine tomato and remaining ingredients in a large bowl. Add pasta, and toss well to combine. Serve immediately.
  3. Tip: Quickly peel tomatoes by plunging them into the boiling pasta water (before adding the pasta) for 20 seconds; remove with a slotted spoon, and quickly rinse under cold water. The skins will slip right off.
