- Toss over a low heat until well combined.
- Spoon into serving bowls and sprinkle with the remaining lemon rind.
very tasty dish. quick to prepare
This dish had all the things I really enjoyed eating kalamata olives, lemon and capers. If your on the go and need a quick meal this is would be ideal as it's very filling. The only changed I made was I used sour cream instead of cream and I choose elbow pasta. It states serves 2 but we could of easily serve 4. It's a perfect dish for a luncheon as it could be eaten warm or cold. Just right for hot summer days/nights when you can't be bothered to cook. Thanks JanRoundOz.
