Spaghetti alla Puttanesca
These incredibly delicious Spaghetti alla Puttanesca originate from Napels, Italy and as the name implies the name puttanesca translates to "spaghetti in the style of a prostitute." The exact origin is unknown but what is known for sure are the ingredients a puttanesca must have: anchovies, capers, tomatoes, onions and olives - basically the delicious ingredients from that region. Some (us as well) add chili too, just to spice it up a bit. This easy pasta is made in 15 minutes so it's perfect for a quick midweek lunch/dinner or even as a starter. Best way to serve it is with spaghetti. Quick, easy, affordable and darn delicious.

Lets get cooking!

METHOD

  • Cook the spaghetti

    Bring a large pot of salted water to the boil. Add the spaghetti and cook according to the packet instructions until al dente.

  • Prepare the sauce

    Peel and chop the onion and garlic cloves. Slice the chili. Place a large frying pan over a medium–high heat, add olive oil, onion and garlic. Cook for about 2 minutes, then add the chili, olives, capers, anchovy fillets and cook for about a minute. Chop half of the parsley, add it to the frying pan. Add the tomato passata and cook for about 5 minutes.

  • Serve

    Drain the pasta, reserving about 50ml of cooking water. Add the pasta to the sauce, stir to combine and add the cooking water if necessary. Season with salt and pepper if needed. Transfer to serving bowls, top with the rest of the parsley, lemon zest and mozzarella (optionally). Enjoy
