WWDH - Spaghetti with Lemon, Capers and Rocket

For today's Wednesday with Donna Hay, Sarah chose Spaghetti with Lemon, Capers and Rocket from p130 of Modern Classics.  You can also find the recipe online here

This is a spaghetti flavoured with capers, garlic, chilli, lemon and parmesan.  I used wholemeal spaghetti to make it a little healthier.  I was not sure about the rocket through the pasta (in my case, mixed leaf salad), but it actually tasted quite good.  I really enjoyed the clean, fresh flavours of this pasta.

To see what the others thought of this dish, see the LYL section of the WWDH website.

Sounds delicious - I need more recipes for capers - I buy them and never use them.

This is a great weeknight pasta dish! :D

What I liked about this was its simplicity. Really there is very little work here. Cooking pasta is as easy as boiling water. Then chop and mix.

About capers, I feel as though they can be thrown in everywhere. Especially if you rinse them a bit so they are only mildly salty, not overpowering.

Looks great, I like the idea of using the healthier pasta, next time I will do that! I missed making this the week you all made it so I posted it for Catch-Up Week and I am so glad I did not miss this one.
