This recipe was found in Sunset magazine. It's very lean and fresh-tasting. It's hard to find seasoned rice vinegar where I live, so I've substituted 4 tbs white wine vinegar mixed with 1 tsp sugar and 1/2 tsp salt. It's not the same flavor, but it still tastes good. If it is made ahead, the pasta may need a couple tablespoons to moisten it before mixing it with the rest of the ingredients.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook pasta in 3-4 quarts boiling water until tender to bite, 12-15 minutes. Drain. Cover with cold water and drain again. Repeat until pasta is cool. Drain well and mix with the vinegar and 1/4 cup broth.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix tomatoes with capers. If making up to a day ahead, store pasta and tomato mixtures separately in the refrigerator.
  3. Place pasta in a large platter or bowl. Mix in the rest of the ingredients, adding salt to taste.
