I know olives are a staple for Greek food but I just don't like them for some reason. Maybe I will just discard those from the recipe and not tell anyone ;)

bravewarrior profile image

bravewarrior 2 years ago from Central Florida

Linda, I made this dish for dinner last night. I opted for crumbled feta cheese (although I mistakenly doubled the quantity) and black olives. For the herb mixture I used dried basil leaves and dried thyme (I didn't have fresh) and served it all over angel hair. The flavors of this dish are amazing! However, I found it to be a bit dry. I think next time I make it I'll either forgo draining the capers and olives or I'll add a bit of pasta water to the dish.

Overall, this recipe rates a huge thumbs up from me. It would also make a great cold pasta salad. Just substitute spaghetti for rotini or some other kind of noodle.


Minnetonka Twin profile image

Minnetonka Twin 2 years ago from Minnesota Author

So glad to hear you made this dish. I served mine cold last time-I added a bit more olive oil to it, as I too thought it was a bit dry. I'm so glad you let me know you tried this. I think it's a great way to eat pasta. Glad you just substituted spices you had. That is the sign of a great cook!


bravewarrior profile image

bravewarrior 2 years ago from Central Florida

Linda, I had fresh parsley (I grow it) but that's the only fresh herb I have right now. I tried growing thyme but the squirrels ate my plants!

Anyway, the dish is fabulous. I'll be making it again for sure. I know why it's become one of your favorites!

Minnetonka Twin profile image

Minnetonka Twin 2 years ago from Minnesota Author

Funny you should say that peachpurple-I thought the same thing-I think it's because the black olives, olive oil and some of those herbs. I thought it sounded more like pasta salad but whatever. LOL Thanks for taking time to come to see my recipe.
