A Roman classic with garlic, anchovies, capers, olives and red pepper flakes. I love this spicy pasta
Author: Martha | Simple Nourished Living
6 to 8anchovy fillets, drained and finely chopped
2 to 3garlic cloves, peeled and finely chopped
1/2teaspooncrushed hot red pepper flakes
1can(28 ounces) tomatoes, chopped
1/2cuppitted black olives (such as Kalamata), roughly chopped
2 to 3tablespoonschopped fresh parsley or basil (optional)
Salt and pepper to taste
Bring a large pot of water to boil and salt it. Once the water comes to a boil, you will want to cook it, according to the package directions, until it's tender, but not mushy. Before draining the pasta, scoop up a cup of the pasta water to use when finishing the recipe.
While the water boils and pasta cooks, make your sauce:
Pour the oil into a large skillet set over medium-high heat.
Add the finely chopped anchovies, and cook stirring often with a wooden spoon, until the anchovies have almost "melted away." Add the garlic and chili flakes and cook, stirring all the time, for another minute, so that the garlic doesn't burn.
Add the tomatoes, olives, and capers and cook, stirring occasionally, until the mixture has thickened, 10 to 15 minutes.
Add the drained spaghetti to the sauce and stir until everything is well combined. If it seems dry, add a little more oil and some of the cooking water.
Taste and adjust the seasoning, adding more salt and pepper as desired.
Garnish with parsley or basil, if desired and serve immediately.
I used Fresh & Easy brown rice spaghetti with good results. My pasta puttanesca was saucier than a classic Italian version would be, since I love tomatoes and didn't want to waste any of this delicious sauce. Use as much sauce as you want to create the version you like best.Weight Watchers PointsPlus: *8Weight Watchers Freestyle SmartPoints: *11
