    I would add some sliced pepperoni or chunks of cut up salami. I actually made something similar for dinner last night, with capers instead of olives, a can of diced tomatoes instead of fresh, and cooked broccoli spears, all tossed with whole wheat pasta. I call it "antipasto pasta". It was pretty good, basically antipasto over hot pasta to melt the cheese! Any combo of Italian ingredients would work!
