I simply love sun dried tomatoes and black olives. I always ALWAYS have them in the refrigerator. This recipe is my go-to recipe on most weekday lunches when I'm the only one at home and there are no left overs in the fridge!! LOL....!

It takes about 5 minutes to make it once you have the spaghetti sorted out.. If you're feeling adventurous and willing to go that extra mile you can always add in some shrimp, chicken, sausage etc.......but then if you add the meat, it can be a proper dinner for the family right??? .....not so lazy anymore :)

Serve some garlic bread on the side and voila! you have yourself a delicious meal !!

Spaghetti - for one person

black olives (pitted) sliced - 5
sun dried tomatoes, chopped  - 3( I used the ones in the oil)
baby spinach - about a handful
garlic , minced - 2 to 3
extra virgin olive oil - 3 tbsps
parmesan cheese , grated or shaved - 1 tbsp (optional)
salt to taste
chilli flakes to taste

  • Boil and drain the spaghetti as per instructions on the pack. keep aside.
  • In a wok heat the extra virgin olive oil. add the minced garlic.
  • when it becomes fragrant, add the olives and sundried tomatoes and give it a stir. this will take only about 2 seconds to a minute. switch off the flame and toss the spinach inside. close the pan and let the spinach wilt.
  • after a minute or 2 , toss in the spaghetti and stir. add in salt.
  • add in some chili flakes . 
  • plate it and garnish with the parmesan cheese.
  • You can also add in some chopped sausage or some chicken if you're not feeling too lazy. simple heat up some oil and saute the sausage . if your using chicken , heat some oil and add the chicken after you add the garlic and once its cooked you can proceed with the rest of the recipe.
