Recipe by Cooputo

I took a basic puttenesca sauce recipe and changed it to make it fit my family's tastes. It turned out wonderful, and I have served it numerous times and am always asked for the recipe. In the Summer, I skip the tomato sauce and use fresh chopped tomatoes from our garden and let it simmer longer.
