      Excellent home-made spaghetti sauce recipe, it beats the store brands and it's so easy it makes me wonder why I still buy the stuff in jars. For those of you who haven't tried puttanesca before, I strongly recommend this recipe. I used less oil and fewer olives but it was still very tasty. Instead of the bland black olives you get in a can I recommend a stronger Greek or Italian olive (particularly if you're going to save on calories by adding less like I did). I used fire roasted crushed tomatoes and diced roma tomatoes (which I forget to drain, no matter). I also added parsley and optional cheese. The red wine and shallots were also nice touches. Had leftovers for lunch at work today. Thanks for the recipe!

      This was great. I used fresh oregano instead, and added fresh basil leaves just prior to serving. Not mad about parsley in pasta sauce.
