Creamy Tomato and Caper Spaghetti

Creamy Tomato and Caper Spaghetti

Apologies for my absence over the last couple of months, things have been a bit hectic (read 'stressful') but normality is finally returning (for now anyway!). The camera is being charged as I type, I have a stack of new cookbooks on my counter for inspiration and I'm looking forward to a long hot summer full of picnics, BBQ's and parties

This is a lovely light pasta dish for a summers day, perfect with a glass of white wine. If you don't like capers then just omit them. Some chopped crispy bacon on top would make a nice addition too.
