Preparation & Directions

  1. In 10-inch skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion, garlic and bell peppers; cook 4 to 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until crisp-tender. Stir in tomatoes, tomato paste and pepper flakes, beaking up tomatoes with spoon. Heat to boiling.

  2. Reduce heat; simmer uncovered 20 to 25 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thickened. Stir in olives.

  3. Serve over baked chicken or fish or cooked pasta as desired.

High Altitude (3500-6500 ft): Stir in up to 1/4 cup water if sauce becomes too thick.

If you like, use ripe or green olives instead of the kalamata olives.
