Cook the bucatini
Bring a medium sauce pot of generously salted water to a boil. Add the bucatini and cook until just tender, 10 to 12 minutes. Drain, reserving ¼ cup [½ cup] pasta cooking water. Meanwhile, prepare the ingredients for the sauce.
Prep the sauce ingredients
- Cut the olives in half, checking for any pits.
- Cut the tomatoes in half.
- Strip the parsley leaves from the stems.
- Zest and juice the lemon. [Zest both lemons; juice 1 lemon. Save the remaining zested lemon for another use.]
- Crumble the ricotta salata or, using a peeler, shave it into thin strips.
Make the sauce
In a large frying pan over medium-low heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the pine nuts and cook, stirring often, until fragrant and starting to brown, 3 to 5 minutes. Increase the heat to medium, add the marinara and reserved pasta cooking water, and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until thickened slightly, 2 to 3 minutes. When the sauce is almost done, prepare the basil.
Prep the basil; finish the bucatini
- Strip the basil leaves from the stems; tear the leaves into small pieces.
To the pan with the sauce, add the bucatini, olives, tomatoes, parsley, basil, lemon zest, 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] lemon juice, and 1 to 2 tablespoons oil and toss to coat. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.
- Time the bucatini.
- Strip the parsley leaves.
- Juice the lemon.
- Strip and tear the basil leaves.
- Garnish with the ricotta salata.
