I selected this for a few reasons...I wanted to use up some leftovers and all the ingredients sound like it would be full of flavor. It was, boy am I glad I made this. I thought I had orzo pasta but no it was acini pepe pasta so that is what I used. Both are small. I did use leftover crushed tomatoes in place of the drained and chopped tomatoes. Those are the only changes I made. Very tasty and quick to fix. The capers added a nice burst of flavor to the dish. Thanks ellie for posting this delicious dish.
