I'm doing a dinner party soon, and I want to serve my famous Olives all'Ascolana (where my Italian family lives). However, when I serve them as appetisers, people fill up on them and demanding more and the starter is then a waste. So I want to serve them in larger amounts as a starter, but I still think there should be something else on the plate alongside the olives. Obviously, I want it to be something that remains Italian and works well with the olives flavour-wise, but it doesn't have to be traditional stuff!
Any ideas would be gratefully received!
