    Jainene's Note:

    I found this recipe in an old edition of Guideposts magazine. After reading about "pasta puttanesca" in the first book of "A Series of Unfortunate Events", I had to try making it! I adjust the recipe by adding a small chopped onion, and (due to my husband's preference) far less garlic than it initially called for. I was also out of chili pepper, so I tried a few other seasonings. Due to a wheat allergy, I actually made 1/2 lb rice spaghetti and 1/2 lb regular spaghetti. It was fantastic and is now one of my top five favorite dishes.

    Serves: 4

    1. 1
      Heat oil in skillet until it crackles gently when water hits it.
    2. 2
      Add garlic, onions, olives, capers, Jamaican jerk seasoning, cayenne powder, and anchovies; keep at medium-low for about 5 minutes, breaking up anchovies (they'll dissolve).
    3. 3
      Add tomatoes; raise heat to medium-high till tomatoes start a slow bubbling boil; stir ingredients.
    4. 4
      Lower to medium-low and stir occasionally, simmering for about 20 minutes.
    5. 5
      While the sauce is simmering, bring pot of water to boil; add salt and pasta; boil; reduce heat to medium-high; cook for 10-12 minutes (or until spaghetti is al dente).
    6. 6
      Add parsley and butter to the sauce.
    7. 7
      When the pasta is done, mix with the sauce.
    8. 8
      Divide into four portions and top with Parmesan.
    9. 9
      Serve with a fresh, hearty bread and a salad. For more protein, try a sauteing a chicken breast in the leftover juices in the skillet. The mild chicken would be a perfect contrast to the spicy, salty pasta.
