Tomato & Olive Pasta Sauce is an integral part of the international cuisine, Italian to be precise. Now, if you want your pasta to taste really delicious, why not just pour this sauce to your pasta?

See, here how you can prepare this mouth-watering sauce for the pasta of your choice:

To start of with, first sautée onions and the salt in oil on medium heat until it is slightly browned. Then comes the next step, where you have to add in the fennel seeds and tomato paste.

Further, let this cook for a few minutes and this will help to cook out the rawness of the tomato paste.

After this you can add in 2 cups of water and then allow it to simmer over medium low heat for 15 minutes. Moreover, be sure to keep the lid of the pot on, for this process. This will not only help to hold the flavours in the sauce but also will help to combine it properly.

Alternately, you can maybe add in some dried seasonings or herbs, if you want to. It is your choice at this stage.
