my boyfriend and I made a list of all the ingredients we were in the mood for, and this is what we got as a result. perfect as a light summery dish. we love it!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. dice onions and shallot. mix with garlic, and simmer in olive oil until the onions begin to brown. boil water for pasta at the same time.
  2. grate lemon rind.
  3. add white wine and 1/2 of lemon rind to onions as well as all of the juice. I add a glug of olive oil here but I don't know if it actually adds anything.
  4. cook pasta according to package directions. cut tomatoes into large chunks (8-12 per tomato usually)
  5. drain pasta, run some cool water over it to prevent sticking together. poor into bowl. add tomato chunks and capers, pour sauce over all. stir all together, sprinle the rest of the lemon rind on top.

I adore all of these ingredients, but all together, it just didn't work. Maybe too much lemon. I admire the creativity, but I wouldn't make it again.

Emilynye this was very tasty. I did not have capers but it would be great with them:) I served this with Baked Salmon by ngibsonn along with peas and a green salad with pears, feta, and raspberry vinegar dressing. Tonight I mixed the leftover salmon, peas, and pasta together for a new casserole.
