Iron Chef Miami: October 2009 - Capellini Caprese
The winning submission into our Iron Chef challenge was Tina Fabiano's Capellini Caprese. My favorite part about this dish was the addition of capers. It REALLY made a difference...
or, as Tina calls it..."Fresh Tomato Sauce"
2 Ibs Roma tomatoes dice
2 Tbsp olive oil
5 cloves of garlic not heads chopped
Basil as many as you like chopped
Salt to taste
Black Pepper to taste
1 to 2 Tbsp Capers
1. Heat oil in pan, add garlic and stir until lightly brown. Add tomatoes and let it simmer.
2. Add basil, salt, pepper and capers and let it simmer again for 5 minutes.
3. Serve over pasta. I prefer Angel Hair pasta. Top with fresh Parmesan cheese.
You can also serve over chicken, meatballs or fish.
So easy and simple...but what a culinary delight!! Yummy, Yummy, Yum. Congratulations, Tina!!
