Recipe by ~Nimz~
Which in Canada is Salade de pates au poivron, or so they say. I haven't tried this yet because I'm posting it for the WT 06. In the original recipe by Debra Weber, she says you can use 20 small Nicoise or the Kalmata olives, but it would not let me post that so I'm putting it here. This really sounds good.

3 stars...Made this dish tonight with our dinner...it was good, though it seemed like it needed something to spice it up. Maybe it's just me and DH, I have been cooking some REALLY spicy things lately...I would try this again, but would add additional spice or pepper. Thanks for the recipe ~Nimz~.
