When bringing a side dish to a party, don’t forget the power of capers. My favorite pasta salad recipe involves capers. They pack a real punch; they offer so much flavor in the tiniest little space. If you’re going to move forward into true Italian cooking, you simply cannot forget the capers.
Make a pound of fusilli pasta and toss it in a serving bowl with whatever thinly sliced and diced veggies you love: celery, cucumber, tomato, and peppers.
Add a pack of chopped fresh basil.
Drain a jar of capers, and add all the capers to your beautiful pasta bowl. Then, squeeze a fresh lemon over the pasta and veggies. Add in a few tablespoons of olive oil. Toss well and enjoy.
This is my plan for cooking tomorrow morning. I’ll post a picture then (sorry for the great anticipation with no picture!).
Do you have a simple pasta salad recipe you love?
