  • Puttanesca Sauce

  • This can simmer for up to 1 hour. The longer it simmers, the better the favors mix. Can be made day before.


    • 2 tsp olive oil
    • 1/2 small onion
    • 1 clove garlic
    • 2 oz. can of anchovy fillets
    • 2 T capers
    • 10 medium olives
    • 3/4 cup crushed tomatoes
    • Basil, oregano, parsley (all fresh, if possible)
    • Red pepper flakes
    • Black pepper


    • Mince garlic and chop onion into small pieces. Heat oil on low/medium. Reduce heat to low and add garlic and stir for about 2 minutes. Garlic should be golden. You can remove garlic, if you like.
    • Add red pepper flakes and stir for about 1 minute (brings out flavor of red pepper).
    • Add chopped onion and cook until clear (depends on age of onions, usually 3-7 minutes).
    • Add anchovies and break up with a fork. Add the olives, capers, herbs, and tomatoes. Stir together.
    • You can either just cook briefly, at this point (10 minutes) or leave on low to mix flavors together.
