Papardelle & Capers Alfredo Dinner

When I was in college, I'd mix in straight-from-the-jar Alfredo sauce with spaghetti and call it a well-cooked meal. Oh, how the times have changed.

It's crazy how a few extra ingredients can completely transform a meal.

For this meal, I got:
1 Package of Pappardelle (this is the gluten-free version from Trader Joes, which is fantastic)
1 Jar of Alfredo Sauce
1/2 of a Lemon
1/2 a jar of Capers.

1. While the water is boiling mix in the jar of Alfredo sauce with 1/2 of a lemon and 1/2 a jar of capons. Let it simmer on low heat for at least 10 minutes. Stir occasionally.

2. Cook the Pappardelle for 10-12 minutes, drain and rinse.

3. Serve with some delicious Parmesan and sourdough.

This meal is incredible. I seriously don't think I can have straight Alfredo sauce ever again. The capers and the lemon complement each other perfectly. This dish is delicious! And, like my wedding colors, as I was babbling to my husband about how amazing lemon is with capers, my husband revealed that it is incredibly common to have both lemons and capers in a meal.

Well, then. Before you know it, I'll be accidentally inventing algebra. Y'know, if I were any good at math.
