I'm also a fan of hearty meals with tons of meat and cheese, but I'm getting a huge gut..so I thought I would try this recipe. Fantastic. I left out the olives and put zucchini in it. I've never tried capers before, but I would definitely leave those out next time. They have a flowery salty taste and I didn't like them at all. Good thing I was able to pick them out.

Highly recommend this one. Try it.

I have to admit: it usually takes a great deal of cheese or heavy cream to make me really want to give a pasta dish more than the allowed five stars, but this dish is the exception. My DH and I decided that this was like caccaitore (sp?) but without the meat that generally goes with it and it's just wonderful. Neither of us missed the extra added fat that usually makes a recipe to die for. I made this exactly as written, except I used shallots and onions, and left out the capers (I'm not a big fan.) We absolutely loved this dish, and the next time I'm in the mood for an amazing flavorful pasta dish, but not in the mood for something that will clog my arteries this is my go-to meal. Thanks for sharing!!
