Capers, you either love them or hate them! I’m a capers fan kind of person. I absolutely love them! They’re just like little pickles, yum and sour. I don’t get it why some people hate capers (Uhm, my parents included). Maybe it has something to do with bad food memories? Or they just don’t like their taste (Why…???). Anyway, in this pasta with arugula pesto, capers are just perfect! Of course, if you’re in the second category mentioned above, you may omit them, the pasta will still be good.

I used to eat arugula, also known as rocket or rucola, once or twice a year and usually when eating out. I’ve always thought it was a bit expensive for what it really is – young dandelion leaves. It’s basically a weed so its price isn’t justified at all. Anyway, I was buying some groceries a week ago and saw a pack of arugula at a more decent price than usual. I decided to give it a try. Oh, so good I did! I just fell in love with it.

I’ve eaten arugula before, but for some reason, I wasn’t amazed by its taste. Maybe the recipes it was used in weren’t too good, I don’t know, but now I feel like I rediscovered arugula. I used it in pizzas, hummus and now in this awesome pasta with arugula pesto recipe! I just can’t get enough of it! Tori’s asparagus, avocado and arugula salad is next on my to-do list. 🙂
