  • Summary

    This recipe uses tapenade as a sauce for pasta, but you can also make it separately and use it in other ways. It can be a dip for vegetables or crackers, a sandwich filling (wonderful in combination with light cream cheese), or a pizza topping. Try spreading it on a split piece of ciabatta bread, sprinkling some Parmesan cheese on top, and broiling it for a few minutes. In a salad, it makes an elegant lunch or light supper.

    Ingredients

    • Salt

    • 2 medium cloves of garlic
    • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
    • 1 pound linguine
