Ready in 20 minutes
Great flavor! And quick to prepare too!
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.

michelle5196 2y agoThis is excellent with slight variations- i use kalamata olives, and add 2-3 anchovies to the oil base- awesome with spinach fettuccine!

rooster5100 3y 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!

gimlet123 5y agoReally great. Next time I will cut the olive oil by 2 tablespoons. I think it will be almost as good with a few less calories.
officework13 6y agovery 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. great job.
