Cold Italian Pasta
We would like to call this lazy man’s pasta. It is quick, easy and delicious too if you are looking for something light for dinner after a heavy lunch or brunch. The ingredients are really things you will most definitely have in your pantry, at least ours did. This is served cold and cooked the previous day by the Italian Jewish community and eaten on Shabbat, when no cooking is allowed. You really don’t need a recipe for this, it is that simple
The recipe called for Egg noodles, olive oil, Green Olives, garlic, parsley and salt to taste. We used wheat pasta, pimento olives and smoked olive oil. Our dear friend Cynthe, sent us this bottle. It is extra virgin olive oil that has been naturally wood smoked. It adds great depth and flavor to this simple dish. We loved the addition of the smoked olive oil, Thanks Cynthe!
