Rita Maas

Servings: four.

This recipe depends on juicy, flavorful tomatoes. Big, fruity, green Cerignola olives are less briny than other green olives and make a delicious difference.

  • 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 lb. fettuccine
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 8 imported black olives, pitted and coarsely chopped
  • 8 imported green olives, pitted and coarsely chopped
  • 2 Tbs. capers, rinsed; chopped if large
  • 3 Tbs. chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Drain it well, return it to the pot, and toss it with the tomato mixture. Toss again with the olive oil, olives, capers, parsley, salt, and pepper. Let sit for 3 to 5 minutes. to absorb the flavors before serving.

    Very ordinary. Doesn't seem to come together in any kind of very tasty way despite the tasty ingredients...
