This is very good. It didn't say when you should add the chile so I added with the tomatoes and anchovies as that where it was on the ingredients. It was flavourful and light, thought I think I will use more anchovies next time because I like a stronger anchovy flavour in my Puttanesca sauce. Thanks for sharing.

This couldn't be any easier. Very tasty and it was a hit with my family. Made for ZWT4 for the Tastebud Tickling Travellers.
