End of term pasta

Thursday was my last night in Oxford for a couple of weeks, and I was cooking for two again. I felt that I'd had a lot of meet in the last week, and was in need of a veggie meal.

To start with, I roasted all the veg left in my fridge, red onions, brocolli, mushrooms and leeks:

Then I made a puttanesca-type sauce.

I fried an onion and some garlic:

I added some olives and anchovies to the pan:

I then added tinned tomatoes, and some seasonings, and cooked the sauce for 10-15 minutes.

I then added the final ingredients: chopped anchovies, green and black olives, and capers:

All that was left was to cook the pasta, and combine:

I think I might have almost convinced him that veggie food is ok!

I'm going to send this to Presto Pasta Nights, which is hosted this week by Marye at Baking Delights.
