Christine Fiorentino - Bucatini with Shrimp & Capers

Bucatini with Shrimp and Capers

You just can’t go wrong with a lovely pasta dish like this Bucatini with Shrimp and Capers. Bucatini, with its tubelike center, absorbs all the delicious flavors of a light and chunky tomato sauce made with sweet Roma and San Marzano tomatoes, tangy capers, aromatic white wine, earthy fresh herbs, and plump and tender shrimp. Serve this dish with a generous sprinkle of grated Parmigiano Reggiano and a loaf of freshly baked Italian bread for soaking up this rich and flavorful sauce after it has simmered low and slow on the stove. I hope this recipe brings as much love and joy to your kitchen as it has for my family.
