Your thoughts…

  1. i always admire people that make good use of the left over food..this recipe certainly give justice to this left over pasta..btw i love the idea of putting corn on the pasta..i could imagine the taste :-) yummy

  2. lately even i’ve been using a lot of yogurt to substitute mayo or cheese. works really well and easy on the calories too. If possible low fat yog. I’m sure this tasted wonderful.

  3. Oh, yum! What was your inspiration for combining corn and olives in this pasta dish, Margot? I love the idea of that sweet ‘n salty pairing.

  4. I’ve never use olives in the pasta and would love to give it a try next time I cook pasta!! Thanks for the idea!
