Recipe by Charishma_Ramchanda

Did you know that pasta is low in fat and high in complex carbohydrates which gives you energy? A half cup serving of cooked pasta contains a mere 99 calories, less than half a gram of fat and less than 5 mgs. of sodium. It is advised that when making pasta dishes, one must choose a pasta shape and sauce that complement each other.

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!
