Fantastic! I made this the other night for dinner, and couldn't believe how quickly it disappeared. I skipped the pine nuts, and increased the cheese just a little bit, both of which I thought were minor changes. Even my 4-yr old ate it! Thanks, Canadian!

Yummm I just finished making/eating this dish. I also thought I'd add sliced orange bell pepper since I had some in the fridge... and I didn't have canned diced tomatoes so I diced 3 medium sized tomatoes. Used red instead of white wine cuz thats what was on hand. And also added chili paste since i wasn't using canned tomatoes... added a nice spicy kick as well as using more chili flakes then called for... Deliciously spicy!

Just great! i used whole wheat penne, because that is what I had, and i guess i drunk all my wite wine (oops!), so substituted some rice vinegar (2 tbsp.). I couldn't bring myself to open a 28 oz. can of tomatoes (who uses 14 1/2 ounce cans anyway?), so I used fresh grape tomatoes and had to guess at how much. I used parmesan cheese and some grated mozzarella. Delicious! This would also be good with goat's cheese or feta. Thanks for posting.

Fantastic! We really enjoyed this dish. Healthy but really flavorful. I halved the recipe and had enough for 4 servings. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

A long overdue review for a five star Pasta dish. Wonderful taste and great presentation for this easy to make recipe. This is good with or without the olives, the pine nuts and red pepper flakes make for an added touch. The whole wheat spaghetti is a favorite here, and always gets a special thumbs up from the teenager. This Canadian thanks the Canadian _in _the_ bay for sharing a recipe that makes for such a special meal for pasta lovers.

Positively 5 star - a wonderful combination of flavours - plus we both LOVE swiss chard! I did not have wholewheat spaghetti, so I used linguini & I had no black olives either. Other than that, I made no changes to the recipe, although I halved the quantities, as there were only the 2 of us. I loved the addition of chilli flakes and pine nuts - great! A keeper for us- thanks for posting this recipe! FT
