Pasta with garlic & Kalamata olives


Pasta hymne: “My beautiful pasta, you delicious and tasty thing, please stand there warm always for me, with these Kalamata olives and garlic patent, who really needs a red sauce in the end?” This is all you can get from my poetry skills. I did write this in seconds though, I guess it’s obvious! Either way, there is no greater thing, than your warm pasta while watching a movie and relaxing.. perfect!

Sativa Kalamata olives are from Greek Food Tales!
