Decidedly Different Dining

When my spouse & I were college students, the university dining hall featured special meals one or two Fridays a month. We tried to go as often as possible, and always felt like it was a night on the town. Now we can get that feeling at home, without the added calories.

My family is very fond of this. I rinse the olives & capers to remove excess oil & saltiness. A serving is 2 thighs & @ 1/4 cup of the tomato mixture (adapted from Cooking Light)Submitted by STRIKERMOM5
When cooking with pasta, I have always believed in the old saying that 'less is more'.
What I mean by this is that you don't need to add dozens of ingredients to a dish for it to be really tasty.
Sometimes, too many ingredients can be a little overpowering with all the flavours fighting to stand out. Pasta can be enjoyed with the addition of nothing more than some salt and pepper and a good splash of quality olive oil.
Here is a perfect example where I have chosen a few good quality ingredients that will compliment each other without overcomplicating the dish.
For those of you who are quite adventurous, have a go at making your own pasta. It is not as tricky or complicated as you may think!
