Olive-lovers this is one you should not pass up! This is easy and quick to make with so much flavor, and can be on the table in an hour or even less. If you are in a hurry, just cook for 25 minutes, or even simmer for a longer time, this is even better if made a day ahead to allow flavors to blend. Prep time includes boiling the pasta.
