Puttanesca Sauce

August 17th, 2009

This is the traditional “working girl’s” sauce, not the “everything left in your fridge” sauce it has become in America. It’s made up of just what the Italian working girls could carry with them that did not require refrigeration: tomato, garlic, red pepper, nicoise olive, caper, anchovy and white wine. This sauce is kind of like Woody Allen – those that love it, love it. Those that don’t, don’t – there is no middle ground. It’s quite a sophisticated taste for the younger set.

Pasta: Any long pasta or bold flavored filled pasta.

Wine: Spicy red or deep honey-colored big fruit Sauvignon Blanc.
