I think you’re going to love this recipe. It’s easy to make, healthy, delicious and because it is a one skillet recipe, clean up is a snap.

I was actually surprised at just how flavorful it came out.  I think the capers are the touch of magic in it so don’t skimp on them.

I chose to serve it over zucchini pasta, or zoodles as they are commonly called.  They make such a healthy substitute for wheat pastas, and if you are wheat sensitive or allergic to gluten, this is the way to go.  But serving it over pasta tastes great too.  If you’ve never made zoodles before we show you how to do it on this short video on how to spiralize zucchini.  I didn’t cook the zucchini in this recipe, but you can sauté it lightly in a hot skillet with olive oil.
