This is a wonderfully easy and delicious pasta dish. The lemony flavor is light and tasty flavored so well with the seasonings. I used whole-wheat linguini and omitted the olives because I didn't have any though they would be delicious with it. I did add a few more tomatoes in their place, however. Very tasty! Thanks for sharing, Annacia. Made for Photo Tag.
