When i read this recipe in GoodFood India, I couldn't resist trying it immediately... the vibrant colours and fresh flavours enticingly beckoned me and i just couldn't resist!!! So here's another recipe to liven up your summer lunch... the TOSSED -UP SPAGHETTI requires:

Spaghetti- 400 gm
Red Onion- 1, finely chopped
Lemon- 1, zest and juice
Capers- 4 tsp
Extra Virgin Olive Oil- 6 tbsp+ extra to drizzle
Red chilli- 1, finely chopped
Sugar- a pinch
Chives- handful, snipped
Cherry Tomatoes- 500 gm, quartered
Bocconcini- 250 gm, torn
Mint- 1 bunch, leaves torn.

Method: Marinate the chopped onions in the lemon juice, zest, salt and pepper. Leave aside for 10 minutes, till the onions sweat and soften. Add the capers, oil, chilli and sugar to the onion mix. Adjust seasoning. Boil the spaghetti, drain, toss with a little olive oil and cool. Mix in the onion dressing, tomatoes and half of the fresh herbs. Adjust seasoning and toss well. Chuck in the Bocconcini and toss gently through the pasta. Divide into bowls, drizzle a little olive oil and top with rest of the fresh herbs. Serve with a chilled glass of Proseco on a warm summer afternoon :)
