Really easy spicy tomato caper rotini

I made this the other night with a few random ingredients I found in my pantry and it was really easy and tasty:

1 package rotini pasta (any pasta will do, really)
4-6 fresh tomatoes
1 small jar capers
1/8 cup Olive oil
A generous dollop of chili oil
Cajun seasoning
Salt, pepper
Parmasan cheese

Cut the tomatoes and let them simmer in a frying pan with lots of oil while the noodles are cooking. After they start to get tender, add the capers, chili oil, Cajun seasoning and salt/pepper to taste and keep simmering until the tomatoes start looking saucy. Drain the noodles and add to the sauce, mix it all up and sprinkle with Parmasan.



  1. Yum! We just got home and I'm STARVING and this recipe made my mouth water! Unfortunately I'm missing a couple of ingredients, but will plan to try it later. Thanks!

    Here's one I really liked-- it's a great way to use up all that Gruenkohl we've had left over from my runs to the market. :-)


    (your capers made me think of it...)

  2. This looks nice... I'll try in when we get back from the in-laws.
