Serves:

2

Time:

about 15 min

Ingredients:

  1. 250 gr (8.8 oz) of Paccheri
  2. 200 g (7 oz) fillet of sea bass
  3. 200 g (7 oz) Pachino cherry tomatoes
  4. 50g (1.7 oz) La Rocca pitted Taggiasca olives
  5. 20 g (0.7 oz) pine nuts
  6. 20 g (0.7 oz) salted capers
  7. Half cup of white wine
  8. A sprig of fresh parsley
  9. Extra virgin olive oil
  10. Garlic (optional)
  11. Chilli pepper (optional)
  12. Lemon zest

Method:

  1. Bring plenty of salted water to the boil in a saucepan to cook the pasta.
  2. In the meantime, add a spoonful of oil to a non-stick pan and brown the garlic and chilli pepper. Wash and rinse the capers then wash the tomatoes and cut them in half before adding them both to the pan along with olives and pine nuts. Cook on a high heat and add white wine. Cut the sea bass fillet into 2 cm chunks removing all the bones, then add to the pan and continue cooking for 2-3 minutes whilst stirring.
  3. Cook the pasta in salted boiling water following the cooking instructions on the packet, then drain and keep a ladle of the cooking water aside. Sauté in the pan with the sauce for a couple of minutes. If the dressing is dry, add a little cooking water to the pasta.
  4. Serve and garnish with the previously chopped parsley and a grated lemon zest.
