8 oz pasta
Olive oil
1/2 white onion, chopped
1/3 pine nuts
1 Tbsp. anchovy paste
Black pepper
Red pepper
2 Tbsp. capers
˝ cup chopped parsley
Shredded Parmesan cheese

Boil water for pasta while you chop your vegetables. When the water boils, throw in your pasta (any kind), and heat the olive oil in a pan. Set timer to cook pasta al dente.

Sauté the following ingredients in the olive oil. Add them in the order listed, sauté each group of ingredients for a minute before you add the next.

1. Chopped onion.
2. Anchovy paste, chopped garlic, pine nuts, black pepper and a little red pepper.
3. Capers.
4. Chopped parsley (sauté very briefly).

By now your pasta should be done. Drain it, toss it with caper/onion/pine nut mixture and generous amounts of shredded Parmesan cheese, and serve.

Personal Notes:
This is Dan’s favorite pasta – we call it ‘The Dish’. The ingredients of ‘the dish’ can vary depending on what is in the fridge, so use more or less of each ingredient depending on your personal taste, and feel free to throw in extras such as lemon juice, olives, or sundried tomatoes. This is a quick and delicious week night dinner.
