Spicy Pasta Puttanesca
Pasta Puttanesca is a classic Italian dish! The puttanesca sauce includes the finest San Marzano tomatoes, garlic, anchovies, capers, and olives. Here I include some chilis for extra spice. Incredibly delicious enjoy this taste of Italy today!
can also sub penne if you like
San Marzano Tomatoes
Mince the garlic and chilis. Heat up the olive oil in a large saucepan on medium. Once hot, add the minced garlic and chilis and stir for a minute. Add the anchovies and stir until they have melted.
Add the tomatoes (break up with your wooden spoon), capers, and olives. Bring to the boil. Then allow to simmer until the sauce has thickened around 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, cook the pasta according to the pasta directions.
Once the pasta is cooked and drained, add the thickened puttanesca sauce to the pasta and stir to incorporate. Add salt and pepper to taste, then garnish with Italian parsley (of course!). :-)
Enjoy this most delicious of pasta dishes! If you prefer a non spicy version feel free to leave out the chilis. You can use a different pasta such as penne, or linguine if you like. Mangia!
