  • pan
  • knife
  • chopping board


  • 500 g linguini pasta I used fresh
  • 300 g beef frankfurters
  • 6 tbsp sun-dried tomato sauce
  • 200 g char-grilled vegetables I used frozen - ready bought ones
  • 50 g garden peas fresh or frozen
  • 10-15 kalamata or green olives stones removed
  • 2 tbsp crispy onions fried onions
  • 4 tbsp Parmesan cheese finely grated
  • 1 tbsp mixed Italian herbs dried
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp freshly grated black Pepper
  • 10 sprigs fresh parsley to mix in and to garnish
  • 2 cloves garlic crushed and finely chopped
  • 1-2 tbsp olive oil


  • I always boil the pasta together with the frankfurters for a few minutes as this fresh pasta only needs a little time to boil. A maximum of 7-8 minutes. When ready just drain the pasta and set aside. Frankfurters ony need about 5-6 min to boil so add them to the boiling water and remove a little earlier if need be. 
  • While pasta is boiling, take a pan out place on medium fire and add a little drizzle of olive oil.
  • Add the crushed and finely chopped garlic and cook for literally 30 seconds followed by the sun-dried tomato pesto sauce and then shortly throw in the vegetables. Cook all for a couple of minutes stirring occasionally. Add a drizzle or two of water if you feel like it’s needed although the vegetables being frozen they will release some water. Add the peas too.
  • Turn off the heat and set aside for a few minutes.
  • Add the pitted olives to the vegetable sauce along with the boiled and sliced frankfurters. You may fry the frankfurthers if you wish.
  • Season well by adding some salt (careful as olives add saltiness to the dish), pepper, the crispy onions and the mixed Italian herbs.
  • Mix well the vegetable mixture into the pasta and serve hot with a generous sprinkle of Parmesan cheese, I would say even a nice and thick blanket of it ;-)
  • You will definitely have to grind some extra fresh black pepper over it to give it that extra sublime taste of freshly ground pepper and add the extra piquancy.
  • Chop the fresh herbs and sprinkle them all over before serving.
