pasta puttanesca

I make this all the time! It's quick, easy and tastes.... Unbelievable. It also has one of my faves... Anchovies. I know, I know not many people enjoy the taste but I absolutely love them. Every so often I'll also add some canned tuna to the mixture just to enhance that fishy flavour. It's really to what you prefer. My Nonna has made this a fair few times while I was growing up and I wanted to create it as close to hers as I could. Try it out and let me know what you think... You'll be pleasantly surprised. Enjoy. the delightful cook x
