Tomato, Capers, and Olives ‘Pasta’

Remember this recipe for zucchini noodles? The point of that recipe was for this kind of recipe to follow…… I love olives….mostly I love kalamata olives.  I know in the olive world this is the most common and but a small portion of the many to choose from. I do like others but kalamatas are […]
