Linguine with Sun-Dried Tomatoes
A fresh and tangy pasta dish that can be modified for those with gluten allergies by replacing the linguine with gluten-free pasta.
8 ounces sun-dried tomatoes (in oil), chopped
1 tablespoon garlic, crushed
1 tablespoon fresh oregano
1 tablespoon capers, rinsed
2 teaspoons fresh parsley
1 pound linguine
1/3 teaspoon black pepper
Bring a pot of water to a boil. Place tomatoes (including oil), garlic, oregano and parsley in a blender. Process on high until ingredients form the consistency of a paste. Season mixture with black pepper to taste. Add pasta to boiling water. Cook according to package directions. Add sauce to a skillet to warm through. Drain pasta, reserving 1 cup of pasta cooking water. Immediately add hot pasta to sauce. Stir in reserved pasta water if mixture appears too dry. Mix well.
