Pioneer Woman recipe for Pasta Puttanesca. The recipe calls for bucatini (or spaghetti), red onion, grape tomatoes, garlic, anchovies, pitted yummy olives, olive oil, chicken broth or wine, basil, and Parmesan cheese.
There are almost as many explanations for the origins of pasta puttanesca as there are ways to make it. Whatever the origin, no better cold-weather pasta sauce has come down to us. Puttanesca can be made completely with ingredients from the larder. The basis is a garlicky tomato sauce that is brought to a high level of flavor by the addition of anchovies, capers and olives. Red pepper flakes make things even better. The whole process is ridiculously easy. (Photo: Jim Wilson/NYT)
