Linguine with Green Olives, Broccolini and Bread Crumbs

Pasta dishes make great weeknight meals because they usually don’t take much prep and are quick to cook. I am huge green olive (and any olive) fan, but I have noticed people either love green olives, or hate them. If you hate green, you can always sub kalamata or other mixed olives or leave themContinue reading “Linguine with Green Olives, Broccolini and Bread Crumbs”
