DIRECTIONS

  • Cook pasta until al dente.
  • Finely mince olives.
  • Combine oil and garlic in a heavy pan, heating over low heat until golden in color.
  • Add red pepper flakes, olives and parsley.
  • Stir constantly, cooking just until parsley wilts.
  • Remove from heat.
  • Before draining pasta, dip out 1 cup of the water.
  • Drain pasta and transfer the noodles to your serving bowl.
  • Toss in your olive sauce.
  • Use a little of the cooking water that you saved to "wash" the remaining sauce out of the pan. Toss the water/sauce mix into the pasta.
  • Add more cooking water if your pasta seems dry.
  • Top with grated cheese.
