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!




Place a saucepan over medium heat, add water in it and bring it to a boil. Add a pinch of salt.


Add the paccheri and cook them according to the instructions on the package.


In the meantime, heat the vegetable oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook it for 1 minute. Pour the tomato sauce, capers, chilii flakes, salt, pepper, and parsley.


Stir, and cook the sauce for 1-2 minutes.


Drain the pasta and serve them with the tomato sauce.

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. I’m probably too lazy to cook myself as often as I’d wish, but I always come up with the nicest twists for recipes. I add or remove ingredients, and I feel like a “Master of Ideas.” I dubbed myself that, I admit it. Other than flavors, I’m quite into movies, TV series, sports competitions, hiking in nature, traveling, and learning about other things.
