Tomozza spaghetti by jamie Oliver

I've never blogged about food before, only about where you can eat it:-)
But I love to cook and yesterday we've made this recipe and it was so lovely that I want to share this with you. It's in the Jamie magazine of this month (check this link of the dutch edition). It's very easy and fast so ideal for a weekday when you have little time.



4 persons
• 350 g spaghetti 
• 500 g small tomatoes, cut in half without the seeds
• 2 cloves of garlic, chopped
• 1 ts dried oregano 
• 6  table spoons olive oil
• fresh basil leaves, half a hand, chopped.
• 20 black olives 
• 1 ball mozzarella of 200 gr, sliced
• 4 ansjovisfilets, finely sliced (I used Ortiz, expensive but definitely worth it!)
• 2 table spoons capers
It's not in the recipe, but I added some lemon zest & juice for extra freshness...

Cook the spaghetti al dente. In the mean time mix all the ingredients together, except the basil leaves, in a large bowl to marinate. (if you have more time you can prepare this earlier so the taste will get more intense) Drain the pasta and add it to the tomato&co and mix it well. Finally add the basil and serve, enjoy!

Walk the line

Recently the second part of the 'The high line' in NY was finished. I remember I saw the first part a few years ago in a magazine and I was so fascinated by the fact they used an old subway line as a  base for a park. The result is so much more then only a park, it becomes the glue that connects the buildings and a place for people to meet.
