READY IN: 28mins
Recipe by Lou6566

I found this on "how stuff works" and it is by the Editors of easy Home cooking magazine. They have a winning recipe, and I just want to share it with you on their behalf... Do NOT leave out the capers, and DO use the Kalamata olives( I could only find Calamata ones...It is a wonderful recipe with a very unique, pleasing flavor. Again, altho I wish this were my own recipe, I give full credit to The Editors of Easy Home Cooking Magazine for a delightful new twist on spaghetti that I think you will thoroughly enjoy.

This is one of my favorite ways to have pasta. So fresh and delicious. I usually add fresh basil too, and oddly enough, a sprinkle of Mrs. Dash seasoning. Love this!
