Notes about this recipe

    Great sauce but not enough for 500 grams of spaghetti, so take care before mixing the sauce with the whole batch of cooked pasta.

    We had fettuccine on hand, so that is what I used. I used salt-packed anchovies and salt-packed capers, both rinsed, soaked, rinsed, etc. It was fast and easy, but not sure it will replace my regular puttanesca, which has a bit of onion, more garlic, a touch of fresh oregano, and a few mixed fresh chiles. Perfectly decent though! I kind wished I had red lipstick and a cigaret.

    Delicious and easy. We all loved this, and it immediately went into the repeat folder. Used a full can of anchovies (only slightly more than she calls for).

    I think I have cooked this before a long time ago. This may not be the best Pasta Puttanesca recipe but it is fast and really tasty. I used salted capers that I soaked in fresh water to get rid of excess salt. I also chopped the capers for more picky diners. It was a hit with all the diners old to young.

    Not being a lover of anchovies or olives or capers.....Not sure why I tried this! Maybe just to prove I wouldn't like it?!
