I created this for my birthday, a little of this, a little of that. If you don't want to spend the whole day cooking, make the sauce up to a month ahead of time and freeze it it 2 containers. Use the amount you need and save the rest for spaghetti. The story I've heard about the word puttanesca is that it means prostitutes sauce, and that the ladies would prepare the sauce and put it on their windowsills, the smell was so wonderful, it attracted the men. I know it made my old man melt.
