Bucatini with Olive Caper Sauce

My oldest has two weeks of school left. To say that he is ready to be done would be understatement. Getting him to be motivated to actually go to the bus in the morning has not been easy. He has also been very food picky. It might have a lot to do with the fact that he lost his first tooth this week and the new tooth coming in his been causing him discomfort. Due to all the activity in our household I have been trying to make quick and easy meals. Earlier this week I tried a new recipe for Bucatini with Olive Caper Sauce from the May 2013 issue of the Food Network Magazine.

Gluten Free Bucatini with Olive Caper Sauce


This recipe has 11 ingredients. It takes 25 minutes of total time, all of which is active and makes 4 servings. Since I eat gluten free, but the rest of my family does not, I made two versions of this recipe. For the tomato mixture I used kalamata olives, unrinsed capers (we prefer the taste of the salt) and roma tomatoes. I divided the mixture between the regular spaghetti for my family and gluten free spiral pasta for me. Make sure to serve the dish soon after you add the mozzarella, if you wait it will melt and turn into a big cheese clump.

The flavors in this recipe are great. My two boys loved the olives and capers and dividing the tomato mixture worked out well. Not rinsing the capers gave the pasta a nice salty flavor, which I really liked. The sauce would work with variety of pasta types in case you aren't a fan of spaghetti or bucatini.

  1. My oldest had a hard time eating when his new teeth were coming in, too. I am totally dreading it with my 5 year old because he's a picky eater as it is and he loves drama, so I am sure I'll be making things like this for him, too, when the time comes.

    1. He has another tooth about to fall out, so he will be getting two at the same time :) I'm not looking forward to his grumpiness!

  2. I have one out of the house (out of state actually) who is dealing w/sore wisdom teeth coming in. It's not fun at any age, I know. Luckily, it's temporary and you're a gem to make food that's easy to eat (and sounds delicious).

  3. I love pasta, olives, and capers. Both look like a great dish to eat during warmer weather.
