Ingredients Nutrition


  1. dice onions and shallot. mix with garlic, and simmer in olive oil until the onions begin to brown. boil water for pasta at the same time.
  2. grate lemon rind.
  3. add white wine and 1/2 of lemon rind to onions as well as all of the juice. I add a glug of olive oil here but I don't know if it actually adds anything.
  4. cook pasta according to package directions. cut tomatoes into large chunks (8-12 per tomato usually)
  5. drain pasta, run some cool water over it to prevent sticking together. poor into bowl. add tomato chunks and capers, pour sauce over all. stir all together, sprinle the rest of the lemon rind on top.
