Top-ranked recipe named "Pasta with Olives, Capers, and Parsley"
Great flavor! And quick to prepare too!
"very good, and very easy to make. my wife was really surprised at my cooking ability.
there is a downside though. if too many good recipes like this exist i have trouble enjoying eating out.
Heat the olive oil in a large pan over medium heat.
Saute the garlic until golden, 3 to 4 minutes.
Add the olives and capers and saute for about 3 minutes over low heat.
Add the parsley and saute 1 or 2 minutes more.
Meanwhile, cook the pasta al dente.
When the pasta is done, drain and add to olive mixture.
Toss gently and let rest for 30 seconds.
Garnish with the cheese (optional).

I tried a new pasta - Perciatelli; sort of like spaghetti, but hollow in the middle. The pasta was a very good match, and quite substantial. This would be great with spaghetti or another long pasta too.

rooster5100 1 year agoThis was a hit with the girlfriend and a hit with me!! I think I'll squeeze a lemon into the finished product next time. Maybe sautéed some chicken with the olives too. Great pasta!
