Remarks
You can use any kind of pasta you like: penne, spaghetti, fusilli, etc.

You'll notice that, strangely enough, the pasta takes on a surprising "pizza" taste (tomatoes-cheese-herbs-olive), which makes us call this recipe "pazzas" in the family.
Keeping
To be enjoyed as soon as possible, but can be kept for 1 or 2 days, and reheated.
