    1. 1
      Bring a large pot of water to a boil.
    2. 2
      Add salt and pappardelle, and cook until pasta is al dente, following label directions.
    3. 3
      Drain in a colander, reserving 1 cup cooking water (if you are using fresh pasta, it will cook in a very few moments, depending on thickness and freshness).
    4. 4
      While pasta is cooking, combine olives, parsley, olive oil, thyme, lemon zest, orange zest, and red-pepper flakes in the bowl of a food processor fitted with the steel blade. Pulse until a chunky purée forms.
    5. 5
      Transfer to a warm serving bowl large enough to accommodate cooked pasta (or chop everything together until you achieve the same result by hand).
    6. 6
      Add pasta, and toss to combine.
    7. 7
      Add 1/4 cup cooking water, and toss to combine. Add more water if necessary; pappardelle has a tendency to absorb liquid quickly, so more water may be needed. The sauce should cling to ribbons of pasta but should not be dry.
    8. 8
      Serve immediately.

      This gets a nice bite from the red pepper flakes. It has a very light sauce and the little pieces of zest give it a fresh taste. Next time I'll make sure to chop my zest a little smaller. Thanks Kate!
