Puttanesca is a tangy and fairly salty Italian dish that the street workers used to eat. They ate it because most of the ingredients were cheap and had a long shelf life. Now you will find pasta puttanecsa at fine restaurants and cafes. Todays recipe is made with spinach and ricotta agnolloti but traditionally it should be served with penne or spaghetti.

Perfect Puttanesca

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 10 minutes

4 tomatoes
4 garlic cloves

1 tbls capers
10 anchovies
3 tbls black olives
1 chilli
1 handful of parsley
1 handful of basil
Pasta for 2

Heat the olive oil in a non stick pan.

All the ingredients need to be roughly chopped/diced. The garlic should be finely crushed, the rest think rustic.

Fine garlic and chili

Add the crushed garlic and chopped chilli to the hot pan and stir.
