Paccheri Pasta with Capers and Tomato Sauce

Paccheri pasta is a gift for us from the Campania and Calabria regions in Italy. They have a tubular shape, which means they can be served with or without stuffing. We’ve tried them more often on the simpler side, with a rich tomato sauce, flavored with some capers, chili, and parsley. Since we were aiming for a light dinner, we got exactly what we needed!

I guess I’ve always had a passion for cooking ever since I was a kid when I was mom’s little helper in the kitchen. Even though I wasn’t actually cooking, I was a picky eater, and I focused on bringing more flavor to her dishes, by adding extra herbs and spices I felt might enrich it. Time has passed, and I haven’t changed that much: I am now my girlfriend’s helper.
