Plum Tomato & Black Olive Sauce

We love canned black olives stuffed with bellpepper or else with anchovy fish, but i rarely add olives in my cooking apart from using black olives as toppings in pizza. When i picked pizza in different sauce as theme for this week's blogging marathon, i really want to dish out something with black olives. After googling, i decided to go with my favourite plum tomatoes along with black olives  to serve with my pastas. Trust me, this mildly tangy sauce makes an excellent pair to enjoy with spaghetti and everyone at home enjoyed thoroughly this delicious sauce.

Plum tomato and black olive sauce

Trust me, this sauce is very simple to make and definitely a delicious sauce when compared with the store bought ones. You can use this sauce to make your lasagna as well, the key ingredient for making this sauce is plum tomatoes. Plum tomatoes gives a beautiful colour to this sauce, in case if you dont get plum tomatoes, just add more tomatoes to make your sauce.You can also add vegetables like mushrooms etc in this sauce if you feel like adding vegetables else you can skip it very well.
