I'm surprised this recipe hasn't been reviewed previously as it has common ingredients and is a quick meal to prepare. Even better it tastes good and my 3 year old ate it with gusto. I used the Australian mountain pepper instead of ordinary pepper, and pasta spirals for the pasta. Otherwise the recipe was made as written. The olives provide a nice salty touch which often is lacking with cream based pasta sauces. Thanks Char!
