I was searching for something funny about capers and these guys kept showing up. I couldn’t resist putting a few of the photos in.

I also cannot resist pasta dishes with olives and capers. This one is particularly good. The garlic scented tomato sauce is thick and chock full of crunch from celery. Teamed up with the flavors of the capers and olives, the sauce is simply divine. Fusilli is a fun pasta shape for the dish, but any other would also be fabulous.
