Pasta Puttanesca

pasta puttanesca

Pasta puttanesca is a classic Italian dish. Here, the focus is on using store cupboard items to create a quick and tasty dish.

Spaghetti, tinned tomatoes, tomato puree, olive oil, garlic, sugar, anchovy fillets, black olives, capers, salt, black pepper, parmesan and basil to serve.

20 minutes

Start by putting a tin of chopped tomatoes, 1 tbsp of tomato puree, 2 tbsp of olive oil, 2 cloves of chopped garlic, a tin of drained anchovy fillets, a handful of chopped and stoned black olives, 1 tbsp of chopped capers, a pinch of salt and 1 tsp of sugar into a pan. Cover and bring to the boil, allow to simmer for 10-15 minutes then remove the lid to let the sauce thicken, stir occasionally to ensure the sauce doesn’t stick to the bottom. About 10 minutes through cooking put the pasta on to cook following packet instructions. Once cooked add the pasta to the sauce and mix well. Serve with lots of parmesan, black pepper and some torn up basil leaves and enjoy the Italian way with a nice glass of red.
