This dish is weirdly sweet from the orange juice. Also, the aromatics from the orange zest get cooked away. I'd add it at the end. But the sweetness is just weird. I probably won't make it again.
Pasta with Tomatoes, Orange and Olives
This vegetarian pasta dish is loaded with the robust flavors of the Mediterranean. It’s a riff on a recipe from “The Italian Country Table” by Lynn Rosetto Kasper, who found inspiration for the citrusy, savory tomato sauce in the markets of Siracusa, on the island of Sicily. We like the meaty, concentrated flavor of oil-cured black olives here, but milder green olives (such as Castelvetrano) work well, too. The sharp tang of pecorino Romano cheese is an especially good match for the fruity, herbal flavors. Serve with warm, crusty bread.
pound linguini or spaghetti
Kosher salt and ground black pepper
We loved this. What a great weeknight meal. I disagree with the sweetness mentioned in the previous review. The olives definitely gave a good contrast. I'll admit though that I did throw in some previously rendered Spanish style chorizo with the tomatoes. I think that really kicked it in.
Pardon the interruption
