Black Olive Tapenade Fusilli

Black Olive Tapenade Fusilli recipe served in a bowl.

As daylight gets shorter apparently so does my desire for bright and airy plates/bowls of food. Shifting into a different energy that only fall and winter bring.

This here BLACK OLIVE TAPENADE FUSILLI with roasted cauliflower, brussel sprouts, mushrooms, tiny cherry tomatoes and chickpeas was a mood.

I didn’t make the tapenade but you most certainly could and you could obviously swap it out for another pesto if olives aren’t your jam. I love the tangy earthy tapenade and dare I say it brought my vision for this dish to life.
