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.)

Great supper, and so easy with the microwave! The only change I will make to it next time is to up the capers and get rid of the anchovies altogether. Yes, yes, I know it's not puttanesca without the little fishes, but there's no accounting for taste, is there? ;-)
