Linguine with Greek Olives – Recipe from Penelope’s Oasis

Hi everyone! Today we’ve got the pleasure of a guest post from the blogger at Penelope’s Oasis. I hope you’ll take a minute to stop over and visit her great blog… and you’ll definitely want to try out her recipe that she’s sharing with us today.


I’m Penelope, author of Penelope’s Oasis, and today my friend is letting me share one of my favorite recipes on her blog. We are a big pasta-loving family, and this time of year, when we have lots of family over often, we especially love this tasty and easy-to-make recipe of linguine with sun-dried tomatoes and kalamata olives.


1 16 oz package linguine pasta

1 cup sun-dried tomatoes, sliced

1/2 cup kalamata olives, pitted and sliced

1/4 cup fresh basil leaves, minced

1 garlic clove, minced

1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

1 cup shredded Parmesan cheese

Salt and pepper to taste


1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat.

2. Add the linguine and cook until tender (about 8 minutes), stirring occasionally. Drain and place on side.

3. Combine the sun-dried tomatoes, olives, basil, garlic, oil in a bowl and mix gently together.

4. Add vegetable mix to pasta and stir together. Place in a large serving bowl and top with shredded parmesan cheese, salt and pepper. Stir gently together just enough to coat, and serve.

Serves about 4-6

We hope you enjoy a favorite family recipe, and have a great holiday! If you’d ever like to see more of my favorite recipes, come visit us!
