Sicilian tuna pasta with baked capers is so easy to make, with only a few ingredients, and the baked capers give it a surprising twist. The inspiration for this recipe comes from an Irish blog, I still have to check with my Italian colleagues whether this is really Sicilian, but at least I like the idea 🙂

The reason to make this pasta is that it remains incredibly hot. Struggling for hours in the kitchen is not really an option with this weather. A few fresh ingredients, pasta and canned tuna fish make a delicious, easy and healthy recipe.

I fact I made this recipe as I still had a can of tuna fish left from the summer pasta salad with green beans and tuna. Another great starter, and one of the first recipes I ever blogged is a greek tuna fish starter.
