    We really enjoyed this. I forgot to add the lemon zest. Made for ZWT9.

    This was so easy and lemon zest elevated it to something special.

    This made a tasty and pretty healthy lunch. I used a mixture of green and Kalamata olives and replaced the sour cream with fat free Greek yogurt with a squeeze of fresh lemon in it which is a nice fat free sub for sour cream at times. Then at the very end I just added some crumbled reduced fat feta over the pasta. Very nice indeed. Made for ZWT4.
