This is a delish sauce for pasta.

Top Review by Ms. B

I like Puttanesca and when I saw this recipe for Garlic Lovers I just had to try it. I made the sauce as stated, but was very tempted to add tomato sauce or pasta sauce for a more gravy consistency. I am glad that I stuck with the recipe as written. I mixed my sauce with Cavatappi pasta and the next day the sauce flavors were wonderful with the pasta. Maybe next time I'll add some tomato sauce for a change up, then again maybe not...
