Puttanesca is a classic Neapolitan pasta sauce based on olives, tomatoes, capers and anchovies. The name comes from the Italian, “puttana,” which means, “whore,” and there are several different stories as to how and why the dish came by such a salacious name. No matter the meaning it is delicious. http://www.tigersandstrawberries.com/2005/04/08/puttanesca-fast-food-for-fast-women/

- 1Heat a large saucepan over medium heat.
- 2Add olive oil and allow to heat for a minute.
- 3Add garlic and saute for about 2 minutes making sure not to brown or burn the garlic.
- 4Add all other ingredients and simmer for 1 to 3 hours. Stir occasionally.
- 5This can be served after only 30 minutes, but I like to let it cook for at least 2 hours.
- 6This makes a lot of sauce and freezes well.
- 7We serve this tossed with linguine or angel hair and homemade meatballs.
- 8If you cannot find olive salad just use black and green olives.
