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.

Osso Buco, which translates as “hole of bone” is pure meaty awesomeness. Placing on a bed of risotto or polenta pays tribute to Osso Buco’s roots and takes this Italian comfort food to another level. Traditionally, Osso Buco is made with veal but see how I make Beef Osso Buco, a carnivorous wreath.

Risotto doesn't always have to be the star of a dinner menu, it can also serve as a great bed for another dish which it does in episode 106 of POV Italian Cooking where I make a simple Beef Tomato Risotto.

It can be difficult to make a perfect hard-boiled egg that has a creamy yolk and a tender white. Overcooking a hard-boiled egg, which is easy to do, results in a chalky and sometimes greenish yolk, a rubbery egg white and a slightly sulfuric taste. In this video I demonstrate how I use my sous vide to get the perfect hard-boiled egg.
