    Maxxr's Note:

    I made this for years and then lost it. Have searched everywhere including online with no luck. Went to Miami and found the recipe in an old cookbook in the library there, eureka! Am posting this so I know where to find it, being the scatterbrain I am. It's delicious diet food.

      Well, this couldn't have been any easier and it was wonderfully satisfying - very flavorful. I made the recipe exactly as written (well, I did substitute high fiber pasta). When you do that, the whole recipe is only 9 points! (One thing I always hate about WW recipes is when things like pasta are expressed as "cooked cups". 2 oz. dry = 1 cup cooked).

      WOW! This this one of the best Puttanesca's I have ever had. I served this over whole wheat penne and it was a flavor sensation! I calculated using the new points system at WW and it was 7 points plus including pasta. Not bad at all. Oh and I did not microwave because I had time I made it on the stove top. Still fast and easy! I used anchovy paste rather than whole and olive salad rather than whole. Easy time savers that do not alter flavor. Thanks for sharing!

      Awesome recipe! I doubled everything but the oil and I ate the whole serving on half of a cooked spaghetti squash. Yummy and simple! (6 points total for the ingredients I used.)
