Pompeian Extra Virgin Olive Oil ( Pasta With Fresh Tomato Sauce) #Smiley360

I am a member of Smiley 360! I recently received some products to make this post possible.  I received an awesome mission for Pompeian Extra Virgin Olive Oil! I cooked up something delicious! I received the following in my package from Smiley 360! 
  • (1) one 24 oz bottle of Pompeian Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • (1) one $10 Walmart gift card
  • (1) one retractable measuring spoon
  • Smiley360 Pompeian Extra Virgin Olive Oil Sharing Guide
 Now I didn't choose to use the recipe card because I like to make things "my own". We had the pasta in our cabinet for awhile now and this was the perfect time to use it!  I already had a few things that I needed for my recipe so I went to Walmart and bought my onion and tomatoes and garlic. I also bought some more salt because I was running out. Pompeian Extra Virgin Olive Oil is committed to freshness from harvest to table ensuring that only the finest olives are selected. Pompeian Extra Virgin Olive Oil is extremely low in acidity, which accounts for its robust taste and heady fragrance. The nuances of the flavor can be especially enjoyed in dressings, salads, vinaigrettes or as a table condiment for dipping bread of crudité. I decided to use mine to make fresh tomato sauce.
What do you need to make this recipe? 
-1 TBSP Salt
-1 TBS Crushed Red Pepper
-2 TSP Pompeian Extra Virgin Olive Oil in a PAN Heated
-Set aside 1/4 CUP Pompeian Extra Virgin Olive Oil for the last step in recipe. 
-1 Onion Chopped
-3 Cloves Garlic Chopped Fine.
-1/2 Cup of Pitted Olives
- Pasta of Choice
Chop up your onion, and garlic! Mix it with your red pepper and heat up the Pompeian Extra Virgin Olive Oil in a pan. 
 Sautee until the onions are soft. They will have a light brown tint to them when it is finished! While this is doing its own thing, boil your noodles! This takes about 6 minutes or so for me. 
Set noodles aside and and chop up your three tomatoes ( try to get it chopped up into small pieces) and mix them in with the Sautee mix. Add in your 1TBSP of Salt and 1/4 Cup of Pompeian Extra Virgin Olive Oil.  Then mix in your 1/2 Cup of Olives!  Mix it into the pot of noodles and you are done!! =) This is SO delicious and yummy!

Pretty much a recipe that anyone will love and it does not take long to make AT ALL. Your company will think you took all day cooking it!
