Pasta is a very versatile dish – its always about the ingredients that go into it that make the difference. We feel that the beauty of pasta is in keeping it simple, with a few, good ingredients added in such a way that they absolutely sing when rounded up together. We thought of adding a twist to the regular pasta by adding fish to the dish. Conjure it up this weekend and bring some Italian flavours to the dinner table.

- 400 g penne pasta

Take water in a large saucepan and keep it for boiling. Cook pasta in water for 4-5 min or until al-dente. Drain pasta and reserve 1/3 cup water.
In a frying pan, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and sauté for 3 – 4 minutes. Add pasta sauce and cook for 2 – 3 mins while stirring continuously until almost boiling.
Reduce heat to low and stir in cream, olives, half the parsley and salt and pepper.
Cover and let it cook for another 5 minutes. Gently slide in the fish pieces and simmer for 4 – 5 min.
Put in pasta and the reserved water to the pan. Add the remaining parsley and give it a nice toss to combine.
