Tasty Tips

This recipe is inspired by martinis, which are often garnished with large Spanish olives. Substitute green Castelvetrano olives for the Spanish olives.

Chilling the ZENB Pasta under cold running water as directed in our recipes produces the best pasta texture in cold applications. This recipe is best served immediately, as opposed to preparing ahead to refrigerate overnight.
