This outstanding pasta dish is all about the Mediterranean flavors! From the pasta shape to the sword fish, to the olives and the capers. If you haven't tried sword fish, please do! It's the perfect fish for those who don't think they like fish, because honestly it tastes like chicken! Meaty and not fishy at all.

It marries perfectly with the bold flavors in the sauce and it holds its shape so well!

Make it and let me know what you think!
