A note about serious food allergies

This dish conjures memories of vacations to warm and relaxing Seville, Spain, where the trees hang heavy with fresh lemons and plump green olives. Ladled over al dente linguine and spiked with briny capers, it’s a fresh and healthy way to get a full serving of vegetables. We top it all off with buttery toasted pine nuts for a weeknight meal that’s quick and easy, but tastes like it’s been bubbling on the stove all day.

Recipe Steps

You Will Need

  • Olive Oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1 Medium Pot
  • 1 Colander
  • 2 Medium Pans
  • Step 1 - Prepare the Ingredients

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Bring a medium pot of lightly salted water to a boil and put a colander in the sink. Thoroughly rinse produce and pat dry. Coarsely chop parsley. Halve lemon and zest one half. Drain liquid from olives and capers. If desired, cut olives into a fine dice. Mince garlic.

  • Step 2 - Cook the Linguine

    Cook the Linguine

    Add the linguine to boiling water and cook until al dente, about 7-9 minutes. Drain pasta and set aside.

  • Step 3 - Prepare the Sauce

    Prepare the Sauce

    While pasta is cooking, place a medium pan over medium heat with 1 Tbsp. olive oil, garlic, and crushed red pepper flakes (to taste). Cook until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add the marinara sauce, olives, capers, parsley, and lemon zest to taste, reserving some parsley and zest for garnish. Reduce heat to low and simmer for about 15 minutes. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper.

  • Step 4 - Toast the Pine Nuts

    Toast the Pine Nuts

    In a dry medium pan, add the pine nuts over medium heat. Moving the skillet around a bit to prevent burning, cook the pine nuts until they are lightly browned and aromatic, about 2 minutes. Remove pine nuts from the pan and set aside until ready to plate.
