Spaghetti alla Puttanesca

There are many reasons why it's called puttanesca, but no-one is really sure, but this dish will really stimulate your appetite!

Recipe By: KitchenCIB (https://cookbuzz.com/kitchen/94)
Serves 2 Prep: 5 min Cook: 10 min

Ingredients

Garlic 2 clovea
Dried chilli 2
Black olives 20
Anchovy fillets 2
Capers 30
Tinned tomato (chopped) 1
Olive oil 5 tbsp
Fresh parsley as required
Spaghetti 200g

Method

1
These are the basic ingredients. You can see finely chopped black olives at the bottom of the picture.
2
Put 1-1.5% salt into lots of boiling water and start cooking the pasta.
3
Put 5 tbsp olive oil in a large frying pan. Add the smashed garlic and heat on medium.
4
Once you can smell the garlic and it's turned brown, remove the garlic, add the split open and deseeded chilli.
5
Add the chopped back olives, anchovy and capers and continue frying. Add one ladle of the pasta water to stop it burning.
6
Add the tomatoes and whole olives and reduce the sauce. Taste and adjust for seasoning with the pasta water.
7
Stir well when you add the pasta water to emulsify.
8
When the tomato sauce has reduced, turn the heat off and add the pasta. Stir well for one minute, then serve.

Tips & Note

●This can apply to all pasta recipes - the pasta water itself is a good ingredient for seasoning. The salt in the water should be used correctly (1-1.5% is best). In 2 litres of water, use 20g salt, for example. This will probably be more than you think is correct.
