After making and thoroughly enjoying my Macaroni with Olive Sauce, I wanted to make it into a heartier dish. So, I added more olives for a bolder olive flavor and tomatoes for a broader dimension. If you are a meat person, some diced pepperoni or salami would make a nice addition to the dish. For a little zing, add some red pepper flakes to the dish.
