Recipe by Chocolatl

This vegan recipe is the simplest Puttanesca Sauce I've found. From Dom DeLuise, who attributes it to Caterina Valente. Good with vermicelli.

This was a well rounded and flavorful sauce with few ingredients. Next time I will use diced tomatoes so I won't have to spend so much time mashing them against the side of the pot.
