I know that my DH becomes fearful when I start thinking because he believes that it might inevitably include him doing work. Well, too bad because I had a plan. I loved the idea of this recipe except I didn't want to serve it over pasta. My idea was to "wrap" it! I had DH crank up the side burner on the BBQ pit, follow your instructions, but cook the vegetables in a wok. We then rolled the mixture in flour tortillas for a most delicious lunch alfresco. Uh huh, who's that who said my ideas are dangerous?

Very very tasty - I would never have thought to add capers - excellent taste blend. I did not use pasta just had it plain - still wonderful Thanks for posting
