Linguine alla puttanesca

One of my favourite quick dinner recipes

Recipe (for 2)

1 garlic clove
4 anchovy fillets (in a jar in oil)
shake of dried chilli flakes
tin of tomatoes - 400g
spoon full of capers
large spoon of chopped olives

150g linguine pasta (just because I like it - I think you are supposed to use spaghetti)

Cook the garlic, anchovies and chilli on a low heat til it turns into a mush and the anchovies have broken down. Add the tomatoes to the pan and simmer for 20 mins.
In the meantime cook your pasta in a large pan of salty boiling water. When the sauce is ready stir in the capers and olives and cook for another minute while you drain off the pasta. Mix and serve with a tiny squeeze of lemon, lots of black pepper and grated parmesan cheese.

I made a side salad to have with this of spinach, chopped sun dried tomatoes and toasted pine nuts.

Hot, salty, spicy, delicious! What is your favourite pasta dish?


Don't mess with the chef!
