Spaghetti Puttanesca (Almost)

Posted By Stephen

After our lamb shanks last night, we ended up with some left over ingredients: half a tin of anchovies and half a tin of tomatoes. Kerri pointed out that that was the beginnings of puttanesca sauce which we have cooked many times before and love, so we stuck with that idea.

Compared to our usual puttanesca recipe, the tomato ratio was quite low and we didn’t have any basil, but Kerri put in some extra chilli, which made it all good. Even the slightly plasticky bottled olives didn’t seem too bad. Very tasty.

    Mmmmm… putanesca pasta is one of my all time favourites – in fact I made a variation on the theme yesterday!

    Kittie, it’s one of our favourites too – which you can see if you click on all the links in the post 🙂 We also have some in the freezer waiting to be eaten on a day when we don’t have time to cook.

    That looks outstanding. I love freshly grated Parmesan cheese and pastas. Now I want a nice Italian meal!
