    Manami's Note:

    This is fast, healthy and so good! We made this recipe which we found on F&W Magazine, July/08 edition, with angel-hair pasta and it was delicious! This is "From Chef Tips For Speedy Dishes" by Grace Parisi where the fried capers add a delectable, salty crunch to the pasta tossed with fresh tomatoes and prosciutto.

      Add the prosciutto, separating the ribbons, and cook until lightly browned, about 1 minute.
    8. 8
      Add the tomatoes and crushed red pepper and cook just until the tomatoes begin to break down, about 3 minutes; stir in the basil.
    9. 9
      Meanwhile, in a large pot of boiling salted water, cook the pasta until al dente.

      A Light Chardonnay: 2007 Terres Dorées Beaujolais Blanc will be a great addition to the meal, as well as, garlic breadsticks & a salad of greens.
