  1. easy and yummy. i love lemons…and olives…and olive oil….and garlic…and pasta. i think i'll make this tonight. there's a nice ripe lemon in the backyard.

  2. This sounds like a dish that I make…but I usually add crushed red pepper, fresh parsley and sun dried tomatoes. And if I planned ahead, I've also added sauteed shrimp or chicken breast.
    Now I'm hungry….and I'm watching the Biggest Loser. What a weird contradiction.

  3. i'm waitress-retarded in the kitchen–i'm great at presentation, but terrible at anything constructive in the pots and pans. BUT! i totally made your recipe, although with a kalamata tapenade rather than just olives, added salmon, and a side of broccoli, and it was good! it was easy, and apparently very hard to ruin. :) thanks for the tip!
