This is a very simple, tasty and pretty dish. Boil noodles, chop up some olives, spices and cherry tomatoes. Toss together, enjoy. Doesn't get any easier than that! I really liked the color contrasts between the red tomatoes, green olives and tan (I used whole wheat) linguine. The tapanade didn't "stick" to the linguine very well, so I might use it more as a topping next time.
