2 tablespoons olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/3 cup capers
1 28 oz. can diced tomatoes
16 oz. package baby Bella mushrooms, sliced
12 ounces uncooked Ziti pasta( or pasta of your choice)
1 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
4 cups vegetable broth
Salt and pepper to taste
2/3 cup of Alfredo sauce
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Red pepper flakes

- Bring to a boil: Add the first 11 ingredients to a large stockpot or deep sided sauté pan. Stir together and allow mixture to come to a boil over medium-high heat. When the mixture comes to a boil, reduce heat and simmer and continue cooking for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking. Most of the liquid should be absorbed.
Add the Alfredo sauce: Stir in the Alfredo sauce and continue to simmer for another 5 minutes or until the pasta is just tender.
Add the cheese: Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the grated Parmesan cheese.
- Taste and Season: Taste and add more salt and pepper as needed and sprinkle in the red pepper flakes if you like.
Serve: Divide pasta into individual bowls and garnish with more grated Parmesan cheese and fresh chopped basil leaves.
