Puttanesca Sauce. “Spaghetti in the style of a whore” is the translation…an interesting story!

  • tablespoon Tomato Paste
  • tablespoons Garlic Infused Olive Oil
  • medium Onion, finely chopped

  • In a large pot heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the onion and saute until soft and lightly caramelized, about 6 minutes. Add the garlic and cook an additional 2 minutes.
  • Smash out the anchovy fillet with the flat side of the knife. After the capers are rinsed, mash those with a flat knife as well and add both. Add the tomatoes to the sauce with the olives. Add the tomatoes and the remaining ingredients and simmer until the sauce is thickened and slightly reduced about 30 minutes. Add herbs and simmer for another 10 minutes. Adjust seasoning, to taste.
