I was lucky to be offered by Sardo Foods to create some dishes for you guys with the provided ingredients. With these items, I attempted to create a simple refreshing pasta dish and a party platter of Black Tapenade Olives spread with the ingredients that you might have in your pantry :)! Please don’t hesitate to alter the recipe and create your own interpretation. Remember to send me the final products so that I can feature on my post, or you can tag my on Instagram at Hangry_Foodies!


Recipe for the Black Tapenade Olives spread


  • Half bottle of Sardo Black Olive Tapenade
  • 1/2 cup Sardo Garlic & Pepper stuffed olives, chopped
  • 1 cup Button mushrooms, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic/onion, minced
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 bunch Chopped Dill
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • Freshly cracked pepper


  1. Heat the pan on medium heat and add olive oil. Once the oil is shimmering, add minced garlic/onion until golden brown. Then add the chopped mushrooms and sauté them slowly until they release all the moisture.
  2. In a food processor (or a bowl if you don’t have a food processor), combine the sauté mushrooms, half bottle of Sardo Black Olive Tapenade, chopped stuffed olives, salt, pepper to taste. Blend until the ingredients are well combined. If the paste doesn’t feel as smooth, add olive oil as necessary. Roughly chop a big handful, or about 1/4 bunch of dill, into the spread. Finally, garnish with chopped olives (from the can).
  3. For the platter, I added brie cheese, prosciutto and goat cheese wrapped in raspberry. However, feel free to add anything you like!
