    ~Nimz~'s Note:

    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 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~.

      Very nice dish. I used Barilla Plus Whole Grain Penne. I used cilantro as suggested by a previous reviewer only because I had some cilantro that was at the use-it-or-lose it stage. I added a little grated Asiago cheese to the cilantro and garlic in the food processor. I also cut the 1 1/4 cups oil down to 3/4 cups and it was plenty. Once prepared, I divided in half and added some sausages and additional cheese sauce to make a heartier lunch for DH and kids, leaving the other half as-is for me. Thanks for the recipe - very versatile and has many flavor possibilities!
