Herby Green Olive Pasta

Herby Green Olive Pasta

If I have learned anything from these pasta reels, is that people, as well as myself love briny dishes. While I can eat olives and capers straight out of the jar this herby green olive pasta balances that briny flavor with acidity and freshness, making this a well balanced pasta dish.
