  • Estimated Cost $16.00

This pasta comes together in mere minutes, thanks to the spicy green olive tapenade. I discovered this delicious ingredient earlier today when I stopped by The Olive Press in Sonoma to browse the incredible gourmet olive oils and olive-related products sold there. This dish is the very essence of BrokeAss Gourmet: easy and unfussy yet sophisticated and delicious.

Note: be sure to buy your pine nuts in the bulk section for the best deal!


  • 3 tbsp green olive tapenade $7 for 7 oz.
  • 1 lb spaghetti $2 for 1 lb
  • 2 cups spinach, chopped $0.50
  • 2 oz. crumbled goat cheese $4 for 8 oz.
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes $1.50 for 1 oz
  • 2 tbsp pine nuts $1
  • salt and pepper to taste Pantry

Recipe Serves 4


  1. Cook spaghetti according to package directions in salted boiling water. Drain and return to pot.
  2. While spaghetti cooks, toast pine nuts in a small skillet over medium-high heat until fragrant (about 1 minute).
  3. Toss hot pasta with tapenade, spinach, goat cheese, pine nuts, red pepper flakes and salt and pepper to taste.

This looks delicious. Too bad I’m allergic to pine nuts. Can you maybe suggest a good substitute for the pine nuts?
