this was super tasty!  i added a small can of tomato paste to thicken it up, along with a splash of dry white wine (i like this in my pasta sauces).  also, i used a package of frozen artichokes, so after i microwaved them i imitated the marination with some evoo, vinegar, lemon juice, salt and pepper (tasted just like the real thing, but less oily!).  My boyfriend said it had too many capers in it (i didn't mind) so maybe next time i make it for him i'll cut the amount in half.  sooooo good though..  i'm having the leftovers tonight!


I really like this dish.  I am a HUGE olive fan but didn't care of them in this combination but it still rocked.  My meatloving boyfriend loves everything I cook from this site, thanks for all the great unique ideas. ::)

P.S. I don't think an entire box of pasta is needed here.


:D OMG!!!!  This is so amazing!!!!  I totally didn't expect it to taste like this, completely unlike anything I have ever had.... I could only find the fire roasted tomatoes with medium green chillies, and I was afraid it would have a bit too much of a Mexican flavor, but once everything was in, it was awesome!!! Spicy, warm and yummy!!!  I also used organic brown rice penne pasta instead of angel hair pasta.  I used fresh herbs from my garden, and besides the oregano, I added basil and marjoram.  In case anyone else was a bit puzzled about the canned stuff, I didn't drain the tomatoes, but did drain the olives, capers, and artichokes.  I don't know if that is what the author did, but it worked great!!  Expecting a sort of marinara sauce, I was so tempted to add more tomato sauce, but I am sooooo glad I resisted the temptation. This is a great find!!!  Thank you for posting this!


I made this recipe because I had all the ingredients;  I figured it would be satisfying but wasn't too excited about it....I was wrong this was great!  ;) I ended up only using one jar of artichokes and 1/2 a box of pasta but full amount of everything else.  Before heating up my leftovers I started digging in and decided I like this pasta much better cold.  It would be great to bring to a social picnic.


This worked really well as these are ingredients I usually have on hand and it was a fast meal to make.
  As a variation I used less oregano and added in chopped roasted peppers.  I'll be making this again for sure.


This was great and really easy.  We didn't have fire roasted tomatos - so I used just regular canned and added some crushed red pepper flakes.  We also didn't have capers, so I chopped up some dill pickles instead.  We will be making this again and again.  Thanks!
