    Heather3271's Note:

    I love this because it's a simple, rustic dish that's so quick and easy to prepare. I made this for my son's European Cuisine Day at school, and I had kids coming back for 4ths and everyone clamoring for the recipe! Of course, I didn't feel the need to tell the students about the anchovies. Ha ha!! It also did not dry out in my Crock-Pot set on Warm for 2 hours, but please note that I put the sauce and pasta in it after they had cooled. This is a family favorite for us, and we hope it becomes one for your family as well. Manga!

    1. 1
      Heat 6 quarts of water to boiling. Add salt to water, if desired.
    2. 2
      In the meantime, in a large pot, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add garlic and saute until golden, being very careful not to overcook it.
    3. 3
      Add tomatoes, oregano, basil, thyme, and salt (if desired). Simmer for 15 minutes or until sauce thickens somewhat.
    4. 4
      Once water is boiling, add conchiglie and cook until "al dente" or according to package directions, draining well (See Notes).
    5. 5
      Add olives, capers, and anchovies to sauce. Simmer for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in red pepper flakes.
    6. 6
      If serving immediately, add drained conchiglie to sauce, toss until pasta is well coated, and serve.
    7. 7
      NOTES: I omitted the added salt because the olives, anchovies, and rinsed capers made it plenty salty! For a spicier flavor, either increase red pepper flakes or add to sauce with olives, capers, and anchovies as cooking longer will increase the heat.
    8. 8
      If you want to serve the puttanesca later, allow it to cool. Rinse and drain the pasta well. Then, add the puttanesca and pasta to the Crock-Pot. Mine stayed moist and warm for the 2 hours I warmed it.
