I've made this quick dinner for years. I have to fight my husband for the leftovers the next day. If you cannot find calamata olives: use 15-20 finely chopped capers instead. Feel free to add a little more fresh garlic for a spicy effect (I do). Bon appetite!

  1. Cook pasta of choice, rinse, and strain.
  2. Cut tomatoes into small bite sized halves or quarters.

  4. Put all ingredients together with pasta in a big bowl and mix/toss.
  5. If pasta is a little sticky, add a little more olive oil, until easily mixable.
  6. Serve at room temp (if you cannot wait), cold, or hot-- its all good!

Wonderful!! My husband made it using capers and dried basil--it was fantastic--I ate it 3 days in a row. I am going to use oregano next time for a different kick--Thanks for the fast, easy,delicious recipe
