Pappardelle with Olives, Thyme and Lemon

  • SERVINGS: 2

  • VEGETARIAN
  1. 16 Calamata olives, pitted
  2. 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  3. Zest of 1 lemon, minced
  4. 3-inch strip of orange zest, minced
  5. 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  6. 1/2 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves
  7. 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
  8. Kosher salt
  9. 1/2 pound imported dried pappardelle
  1. Fill a stockpot with 6 quarts of water, cover and bring to a boil.
  2. Meanwhile, in a mini-processor, combine the olives, olive oil, lemon and orange zests, red pepper, parsley, thyme and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Pulse until very fine but not pureed. Transfer the paste to a warm serving bowl.
  3. Add 3 1/2 tablespoons salt to the boiling water and add the pappardelle. Cover partially until the water just returns to a boil, then uncover, stir the pasta and cook until al dente. Drain well, reserving 1/4 cup of the pasta water.
  4. Toss the pappardelle with the olive paste, adding some of the pasta water, 1 tablespoon at a time, if necessary. Serve immediately.

Suggested Pairing

Try a bold red from southern Italy, such as a Primitivo di Manduria. For a white, choose a great Verdicchio.
