RECIPE: Caper Pastas

By 5280 Gourmet 13 days ago 74 Views No comments

So you were gifted our Smoked Salmon gift basket. Have any capers left over? Wondering what to do with them? Well we suggest a delicious caper pasta dish!

Jeff's Garden Capers are picked from wild caper bushes from Morocco and Turkey, where this plant thrives in the arid landscape. The bush's flower buds are pickled for a distinctive salty and slightly briny flavor.

Here is a recipe for Pasta Nicoise from Jeff's Garden for their capers.

Prep Time: 15 min
Total Time: 1 hr 15 min
Serves: 4


1/4 lb. fresh green beans, sliced diagonally into 1-inch pieces, lightly steamed
1/4 c. Jeff’s Garden Organic Pitted Greek Kalamata Olives
1/2 c. red onion, chopped
1/2 c. flat leaf parsley, minced
1 Tbsp. Jeff’s Garden Organic Imported Non-Pareil Capers
16 cherry tomatoes, halved
1 garlic clove, minced
2 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
3 Tbsp. red wine vinegar
1 tsp. Dijon mustard
1 Tbsp. fresh oregano, minced
2- 6.5 oz. cans water-packed tuna, drained and flaked
1 lb. rotini (corkscrew pasta)


Combine green beans, olives, onion, parsley, capers and tomatoes in a large bowl. Combine garlic, olive oil, vinegar, mustard and oregano in a small jar and shake well. Pour dressing over vegetables and toss well. Let marinate in refrigerator for 1 hour.

Cook rotini according to package directions. Rinse and drain well. Toss warm pasta with tuna and marinated vegetables. Serve immediately.
