Pistachio Pasta

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by CaliforniaJan

Got this from my Oregon Jr. League cookbook, which has proven to be a recipe goldmine. Haven't tried it yet, but it is on my list. It sounds wonderful!

A great blend of flavours! I used kalamata olives, angel hair pasta, and - because Sue L had found this a little dry - I doubled the lemon juice (I also added about half a teaspoon of lemon zest) and added about a tablespoon of white wine, so mine wasn't dry at all, but it was VERY tasty! Thanks for sharing this recipe, CaliforniaJan! It's certainly a recipe I'll happily make again.
