Spaghetti with Greek Olives (Island of Crete)

Spaghetti with Greek Olives (Island of Crete)

Spaghetti with Greek Olives (Island of Crete)

To me, almost all recipes from the Mediterranean Diet are comfort foods, but this dish is one of my “go-to meals” for when I want comfort in a hurry.  Even though you may think of this as an Italian recipe because it has pasta, it is actually from the island of Crete.  Packed with greens and olives and topped with Parmesan cheese, this is best served with a simple salad.  Sometimes, I also make sautéed tri-colored peppers with capers as a side dish.  For more recipes from the Island of Crete order our best selling book:   “Foods of Crete: Traditional Recipes from the Healthiest People in the World” by Koula Barydakis and Bill Bradley, R.D.
