    JP834618's Note:

    This is the most incredible pasta recipe I have. It is simple to make and dangerously addictive. If you are looking for a new recipe that is incredibly delicious, beautiful and will get you compliments you have found it. Even people who dislike tomatoes, olives or both cannot resist this pasta once they have tasted it. It is my adaptation of a recipe I found in 'Everyday Food'. Enjoy!

      I see no one has reviewed this lately. I highly recommend you try it. The recipe was easy and fantastically good. I used a bit less oil and olives than called for, as well as way more cherry tomatoes [needed to use up volunteer cherry tomatoes from the yard]. I also added some chopped yellow bell pepper for color. Yummy! Oh yes, go easy on the salt. The olives and Parmesan are very salty already.

      This recipe is amazing, my friends and I used to make it regularly when I went over their house and sit down to eat it with a glass of wine. Goes fantastically with some home made garlic bread - toast it with butter and cheese in a toaster oven and eat with the pasta. Delicious!
