Recipe by twissis

I doubt there are many among us who don't like spaghetti & I doubt there are many of you who won't love this Spanish version that features the addition of pimento-stuffed olives. This recipe was found at & a Dec 2009 contribution by David Joachim in Cooking Light was credited. (10 min was allowed for ingredient prep) *Enjoy!*

I cannot believe how just adding a few ingredients can completely change the flavor of ordinary spaghetti! This is very good if you want an inexpensive meal, just a little out of the ordinary.
