Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Cook pasta in boiling salted water until just tender, 8 to 10 minutes or according to package directions.

  • 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.

  • Return pan to the heat, mix in reserved pasta-cooking water and heat through, stirring constantly. Divide pasta between two shallow bowls and sprinkle with ricotta salata (or feta). Serve immediately.
