If you like Mamacita's Olive Salad but want a little twist, add your favorite pasta! Here, we added gemelli rather than eating it with fresh Italian bread and mozzarella - and it's just as good! It can be served warm for a meal or cool for a side salad. To alter this dish for gluten sensitivities, please see the General Health Information page in our cookbook Don't Cut the Basil, where you can also find Mamacita's Olive Salad detailed recipe!
