Spaghetti with Tomato-Zucchini sauce and black olives

Since my childhood pasta has been one of my favourite foods. Coming from a European family it was made regularly in our house. There are so many varieties of pastas and sauces that it never gets boring to eat. Today I still make it very regular since S. likes it much as well. This sauce is very simple and does not take much time to cook. The black olives give it a very nice flavour.


- 1 packet spaghetti
- 2 large tomatoes, chopped
- 1 medium zucchini, chopped
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 1 Tsp. Cumin seeds
- 1 Tsp. Coriander powder
- ½ Tsp. Red pepper powder
- 1 cup half&half
- 2 Tbsp. Olive oil
- About ½ cup black olives, pitted
- Salt to taste


Boil the spaghetti according to packet directions and then drain.
In the meantime heat the olive oil in a large pan and add cumin seeds and onions. Fry till the onions are translucent. Add tomatoes, zucchini, coriander powder, red pepper powder and salt. Mix well and cook till tomatoes become mushy and zucchini is almost done. Add the half&half and black olives and let come to a boil. Simmer for some minutes and then take off heat.
