the not ( barefoot) contessa fish pasta

باستا مع سمج
I love fish , I love pasta but never cooks them together… I did serve them side by side but never cooked them together until i make this recipe and O’boy what have I missed all these years
I found this recipe in one of my favorite cooking sites in the web " food52" .. love their recipes and their photos
which something i should learn since my 6 years nephew knows how to take a decent picture more than i do
back to the recipe
i used Hamour filet which is similar to cod-fish but any firm white fish will do .. i add one small chopped onion ,chili flakes ,fresh thyme and can of chopped tomatoes
here’s the recipe
3 tablespoons olive oil
3 cloves garlic
1 small onion , chopped
6-10 oil cured olives, chopped
1 pound white fish,cubed
2 teaspoon salted capers
1 can diced tomato Italian style
2 big and fresh tomatoes, roughly chopped
1 packet linguine or spaghetti , fresh
1/2 cup of pasta water
2 tablespoons parsley, chopped roughly
salt and pepper to taste
chili flakes up to taste
1/2 teaspoon fresh thyme
heat the oil and saute the garlic and chili flakes .. sprinkle salt and pepper to the fishes
add the fish and stir until golden then add the onion and keep stirring carefully until softened and try not to break it up
add both kinds of tomato and cook it until softened( about 10 min)
in the meantime boil and drained the pasta ( keep 1/2  cup of pasta water )
add parsley , thyme , olives , capers , pasta water to tomato sauce , reduce the heat and let it thickened
add the pasta to the sauce and stir carefully then serve
