    Fairly quick and very tasty. I used more than the recommended amount of tomatoes and capers and would do so again.

    I didn't have sun dried tomatoes so I used half of a large fresh tomatoe (small dices) - it worked! Everyone loved it!! Would be better with the sun dried tomatoes but no one complained and it was ALL gone!

    This dish is totally up my alley as I love sundried tomatoes and capers. But, my son gobbled it up and the hubby liked it too. Great flavor. Even though I only cooked for 3, I made the additional sauce for the noodles.
