This recipe came to me one day when I didn't feel like going to the grocery store. Basically the ingredients presented themselves in my refrigerator and pantry manifesting this great idea. I LOVE radiatore because of its crevices that trap the flavor. I always have it in my pantry in case of the last minute cooking inspiration. My husband and his father loved this dish. It was so creamy and fantastic. Adding black beans is a nice protein bonus that worked well for this recipe. And I just love kalamata olives, so win!
