    4      cloves        garlic -- peeled
      1/4  cup           extra-virgin olive oil
    2                    plum tomatoes -- coarsely chopped
    1      pound         small black, brine-cured olives
    1      Tablespoon    fresh rosemary -- chopped
      1/4  teaspoon      chili pepper flakes
                         freshly ground black pepper -- to taste
    1      Tablespoon    flat-leaf parsley -- minced
 
 
 Over medium heat, saute the garlic in the oil until it starts to soften. Add
 the tomatoes and cook briefly, about 3 minutes. Add the olives, rosemary,
 pepper flakes, salt and pepper. Lower the heat and simmer for 15 minutes,
 basting the olives with the tomato sauce. Garnish with parsley. Serve
 immediately.
 Yield: 6 appetizer servings.
