Ingredients for 4 persons
1 pack of Penne Rigate by Pastificio Gentile
50 gr of fresh rocket
12 black olives (or 2 tablespoon of black olive patè by Campisi)
1 organic lemon
2 leaf of chives
Extra virgin olive oil
Cook the pasta. In a pot, add 2,5 liters of water and, when it starts to boil, add 25 gr. of marine salt. When it regain the boiling, add the pasta and let it cook for 10 -12 minutes (It depends on how hard you prefer it).
Make the season. In the meantime, cut the rocket with your hands, drop the swordfish from its oil and put the rocket and the fillets in a bowl. Wash the black olives and with the help of a tenderizer (or using a knife) take out the stone from them. Then add them to the bowl. Using a potato peeler, take out the yellow bark of the lemon and reduce it to small stripes. Then cut them in tiny dice. Do the same with the chives. Add the mix to the bowl with the swordfish, the rocket and the olives.
Serve. When the penne rigate are ready, use a colander to drain the pasta. Quickly pour it in the bowl with the season and stir it. Add a wire of extra virgin olive oil and serve to your guest. Enjoy!
Grandma’s tip. If you want a more deep lemon taste, just squeeze half of a lemon and add it at the end, together with the olive oil.
