Food blog: marinara pasta with ‘tuyo’

Cooked dinner for my parents tonight with this pasta recipe that I got from Jamie Oliver.


What you need:

  • ‘tuyo’ (dried fish)
  • capers
  • olives
  • tomatoes
  • basil/oregano/italian seasoning
We actually went to the public market in Marikina this afternoon. I was asking them if I could cook for dinner (which I rarely do), and we bought stuff in the market along with our weekly supply.
How to cook:
  1. Flake the tuyo. I used 1/3 kilo of tuyo for four people.
  2. Sautee garlic and onions. Add the tuyo flakes. Add some chili if you like a bit of spice.
  3. Add the olives and capers with the syrup.
  4. Add seasoning. I used dry basil.
  5. Add tomatoes
  6. That’s it!
It doesn’t need any more salt because the tuyo and the olives and capers are all salted already.
It was really good! I really love the pasta and my parents liked it too.
