    1. Boil pasta in salted water for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.
    2. Place sun-dried tomatoes into a small pan, and add water to cover. Bring to the boil over medium-high heat, and cook for about 5 minutes, or until tender. Drain, chop and set aside.
    3. Heat olive oil in a large frying pan over medium-low heat. Fry onion and garlic in the oil until onions are transparent, about 5 minutes. Add the mushrooms and sun-dried tomatoes; cook over low heat for about 5 minutes. Throw in the spaghetti, and toss to coat. Mix in the green olives. Serve hot with breadcrumbs and lots of black pepper on top.

    I've rated quite a few recipes on this site, and given a lot of 5 stars, but this is the first recipe where I really want to give it more than 5 stars!! Really, really excellent... like something you'd eat at a wonderful Italian bistro. My guests were very impressed.... I served it with Italian Marinated Chicken (also from this site). Thank you so much, Emily, for submitting this recipe and making me look good !  -  22 Sep 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Quick recipe and really tasty... I used sun-dried tomatoes (in oil) instead of boiling the sun-dried tomatoes...And used a combination of black and green olives..Yummy!!!  -  03 Dec 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was great! As others have said, it was a bit dry, but I served it under another Allrecipes dish that helped out with that: Garlic Chicken (by Martha Banks - a Taste of Home Recipe). The Garlic Chicken has a great sauce that went PERFECTLY with this pasta and gave it just the right amount of moisture. The pasta alone, I'd give 4.5 stars, but in combination with the chicken, 5++ stars! Absolutely wonderful! So healthy and serves WAY more than 2 (I'll probably get 3-4 large portions out of it).  -  09 Apr 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
