Recipe type: Pasta
Cuisine: Italian
Serves: 6-8
Ingredients
  • 1 pound whole-wheat or regular spaghetti
  • 2 tbsp powdered seaweed (I crumpled up Nori sheets, put them in my blender, and processed them to a fine powder. A spice grinder might work even better.)
  • 1 tbsp Tamari (use soy sauce if you don't have this)
  • 6 tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 cup pitted, oil-cured olives, roughly chopped
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • ½ cup chopped parsley
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 3 tbsp capers
  • Salt and ground black pepper to taste.
Instructions
  1. Cook the pasta according to package directions until al dente
  2. While the pasta is cooking, heat the oil in a saucepan. Add the garlic and red pepper and toss until the garlic turns lightly golden.
  3. Add the powdered seaweed and stir for another minute.
  4. Add the tomatoes, olives, oregano, parsley, and capers. Cook over medium heat until the tomatoes release their juices and the juices start to thicken.
  5. Add the tamari and more salt, if needed. Season with ground black pepper.
  6. Add the pasta to the sauce, toss to coat, and turn off the heat. Garnish with more parsley if you like, and serve hot.
