Nutritional values

Mediterranean delicacies such as black olives and parmesan provide valuable unsaturated fatty acids and calcium. Pasta brings quickly available carbohydrates; the onions keep the intestines busy.

The red onions have a mild and inherently slightly sweet taste, which forms a pleasant contrast to the somewhat hot rocket and the hearty anchovy fillets. If you like, you can use shallots instead.
