Parmesan Tapenade BowTie Pasta


Ok Tapende is another italian pesto but made with Olives.

Tapenade

1/2 cup finely chopped italian parsley (flat leaf)
1/4 cup finely chopped sweet bail leaves
2 tbs. capers
1 shallot, finely diced
1/3- 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil (lighter better flavor)
1-3 cloves minced
1/2 cup black olives sliced
3/4 kalamata olives sliced

Combine all ingredients in food processor and pulse to break everything up but not turn it mushy!

Cook 1 package of BowTie pasta according to instructions. Place some of the tapenade in a bowl and pour a little more olive oil in just to cream it up some. Add drain hot noodles to bowl and mix carefully not to break the pasta. Use cherry tomatoes (I used sliced large ones thats all I had at the time) Stir in Shredded fresh parmesan and let it melt on the pasta as you gently toss it. May add more Tapenade if you didn't add enough. Add Salt N Pepper. Yum! Everyone ate it up.
