  1. Heat olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in garlic, and cook until fragrant, about 3 minutes, then stir in the tomatoes, capers, bay leaves, and thyme leaves. Bring to a simmer, then reduce heat to medium-low, and continue simmering for 15 minutes. Stir in sage leaves, and simmer 10 minutes more.
  2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain and return to the pot off of the heat. Season the sauce to taste with salt and pepper, then pour over the pasta and toss to coat.

Great recipe. Would use considerably less capers though, as the dish turned out quite salty despite the fact that i didn't use any salt at all. And this is coming from a person who likes her foo...

This was pretty good, my husband liked it. I will make it again. I used penne pasta instead of linguine, its what I had on hand.

I hadn't worked with capers much, but was needing a recipe to try with it. I also have a TON of sage this year so I went for it. I thought it came out fairly well. I marinated some chicken to se...

Tasty recipe. I did add: 1/2 chicken breast that I had precooked & cubed and 8-10 sliced cremini mushrooms. When I tasted the sauce prior to adding the above ingredients, I thought the sauce ...

I had to quadruple the amount of pasta. And we used corkscrew pasta instead of Linguine. We are a large family... but I have to say it was a very nice change to white sauces. I used butter to...
