Light and Fast Angel Hair Pasta

Sometimes we’re just so busy, we forget about the fact that we didn’t do the groceries, and it’s 8pm…so we’re starving.  I won’t lie, it happens often.

So one night John raided the fridge, and I raided the pantry – we came up with capers, red onion, garlic, tomatoes, angel hair pasta, and turkey stock…typically I’d use chicken, but whatever.  Oh and white wine to give it a little oumph! We enjoyed it so much, we now enjoy forgetting to do the groceries.

Light and Fast Angel Hair Pasta – 2 servings
1/4 pound angel hair pasta
Olive oil
3 small cloves garlic, minced
1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
6 roma tomatoes, diced
1 tablespoon parsley, chopped
2 tablespoons capers, rinced, chopped
1/2 cup dry white wine
Low sodium turkey or chicken stock
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

In a large saute pan, heat olive oil over medium-low heat. Add garlic and onions, cook until softened. Add the diced tomatoes and parsley, cook until juices from tomatoes are cooked down. Add the capers, white wine, and enough stock to cover veggies.

Meanwhile prepare pasta according to the package directions. Once the liquid has mostly cooked down, add cooked pasta to the pan, toss to coat and season with salt and pepper.

Serve pasta in two bowls, pour remaining sauce and vegetables over the pasta. Enjoy with a glass of white wine!
