This recipe came from one I already had, I just put my own twist on it. It is excellent whether served warm or chilled, and works for a dinner, a side or anything in between. My measurements are all subject to my own taste. Feel free to mess with them a little.

Made for Spring PAC 2008. This was good and easy to make. I followed the recipe as written other then I used a 5 ounce jar of olives. I also used Dreamfield pasta. I thought this was good but needed more garlic. I added garlic powder when mixing in the cheese. I am the only one in the family that likes olives so this is all for me LOL!

This is really good. My dh & I enjoyed it very much. I added a little extra garlic. I love the combination of flavors and textures, this pasta is light and very fresh tasting. I will be making this often, its very versatile and goes with many dishes. Thanks so much for sharing.
