      I was looking for a Puttanesca sauce that does not require wine. Now I found it!! Excellent and easy to make. I used two servings of this sauce and added cooked shrimp and served it over pasta. Next time I make this recipe, I will add chicken to it.

      This is truly outstanding and chock-full of flavor! I made this exactly as posted, using all fresh herbs and a 28-oz. can of whole cherry tomatoes. I did not chop the kalamata olives, but just halved them. I served this over rigatoni, and it was perfect! A wonderful, wonderful recipe! You only need one puttanesca recipe, and this is it!

      This was a good, easy pasta to make. Had all the ingredients at home (except the anchovies, which I omitted). I sprinkled some feta cheese on top for extra flavor!
