1. In a pan add pasta and pour water till it is immersed. Add a pinch or two of salt and a drop of oil. Allow it to boil. Once it is cooked, remove and wash it with running water. Set it aside.
2. In a heated kadai add butter, herbs and onions. Saute till the onions turn transparent or glass like.
3. Add boiled vegetables and saute for 2min. Then mix 1cup of water to the tomato puree and add it to the vegetables. Add salt and pepper to taste and allow it to boil. Once you see a bubble or two add the pasta and olives. Switch off the flame, immediately add cheese and mix well.
