Recipe Notes

*Make certain y'all use Castelvatrano olives for this pasta. They're dissimilar whatever olive I've always tried. Super mild, super buttery, as well as but incredible. I discover them at my grocery shop's olive bar, at specialty grocery stores, together with Italian markets.

*It's so slowly to forget to scoop out your pasta H2O - to ensure you lot don't forget, continue a mug or heat-safe glass measuring loving cup right next to the pot to remind you!
