      My husband and I tried this as light supper dish and really enjoyed it.No fresh basil so used mixed herbs and it tasted fine.Portions need bulking out with garlic bread or similar.Never had capers and they really added to the flavour.

      So glad I found this. Didn't follow the recipe to the letter. Took the advice of a previous poster who suggested making crisper bacon. Meal was perfect for one and very tasty. This recipe is definitely a keeper.

      Delicious. I, as with another reviewer, used a basil paste in place of the basil. Fresh is very sparse right now. :)
