  • Meanwhile, heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. Add garlic and crushed red pepper and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Remove from heat and add roasted red peppers and capers. Season with salt and pepper.

  • Reserve 1/2 cup of the pasta-cooking water. Drain the pasta and add to the roasted pepper mixture.
