Pasta with Fried Capers and Toasted Breadcrumbs
Inspired by a recipe from “On Top of Spaghetti” by George Germon and Johanne Killeen, this vegetarian pasta dish features brined capers two ways: tossed with the pasta to offer sharp bursts of flavor and fried until crisp and sprinkled on top for textural contrast. Toasted panko breadcrumbs offer a touch of nutty flavor and additional crispness, while a generous amount of fresh herbs lend the dish bright flavor and color; we liked the combination of grassy parsley and slightly piney, subtly citrusy marjoram. If marjoram is not available, fresh oregano is a fine substitute, though its flavor is slightly more assertive and astringent.
