    Kumquat the Cat's friend's Note:

    My favorite recipe category: few ingredients, outstanding results! Delightful, healthful, quick and easy to prepare. I strongly recommend that you use only kalamata olives in this recipe. Otherwise I used 9 ounces bagged spinach, 6 ounces pasta myself, but published the recipe as written. From a cookbook called "The Best in the World" by Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine. This particular recipe came from Au Bar (renamed Je Me Souviens) in Palm Beach, Florida.

      This was a huge hit in my family as well. However, I added a whole pound of spinach, additional olives and a jar of sundried tomatoes with herbs because i too felt it needed a bit more sauce.

      This was a great dish! I had to feed 5 so I used 2 cans of tomatoes and a lb of pasta (rigatoni). I didn't have parsley so I added fresh basil. I also added some red pepper flake for a kick. Absolutely a keeper!
