    I'm rating this as a good recipe. It probably is better then my rating because of the ingredients I used. I didn't have fresh basil so I used dried and I used whole wheat fettuccine which the taste is certainly not the same as white pasta but it's healthier.

    This was a very tasty, not too difficult meal to make. I don't care for Greek olives or sun-dried tomatoes, so I used regular black olives and cherry tomatoes (halved). I also forgot to get fresh basil, so I substituted 1 Tbsp dried basil. I added the tomatoes right at the end, so as not to make them too mushy. I loved the result and so did my guest! This will definitely become one of my regulars!!
