Sun-dried tomatoes can be dry and overpowering when paired with pasta. In developing our pasta with sun-dried tomatoes recipe, we set out to solve both problems, first by draining and rinsing the tomatoes to rid them of their universally unpleasant marinades, then by cutting them into small pieces to tame their presence. Finally, for our best pasta with sun-dried tomatoes recipe, we paired the tomatoes with equally strong ingredients like olives, garlic, anchovies, arugula, and capers.

Serves 4 to 6

Oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes are sold in jars of different sizes. One 8 1/2-ounce jar is enough for this recipe. If your jars are smaller or larger, measure out the tomatoes by removing them from the oil and packing them lightly into a measuring cup. To ensure that the sauce and pasta are done at the same time, start cooking the cauliflower before the pasta goes into the boiling water.
