Spaghetti Puttanesca


Here is an easy to make pasta sauce. Great for when you want a home cooked dish but dont want to spend a lot of time.  It takes longer to boil the water for the spaghetti than to cook the sauce


1/4 cup olive oil
4 cloves garlic minced or pressed in a garlic press
2 pepperoncini peppers minced
6 anchovies (trust me you need them even if you dont like anchovies. You dont taste them in the sauce)
2 Tbsp capers rinsed off to cut back on the salt
2/3 cup Calamatta olives pitted and chopped
28 oz can chopped tomatoes
1lb spaghetti

Cook the spaghetti according to the package

In a large sauce pan heal the olive oil over medium heat
add the anchovies,garlic and pepperoncini. cook stirring occasionally for 3 minutes. (the anchovies will dissolve into the oil)
add the capers,olives and tomatoes
stir and bring to a boil. reduce heat and simmer 10 minutes

In the pot you cooked the spaghetti in add the spaghetti and 1/2 the sauce. stir it together. and cook over medium heat for 1 minute. pour onto a serving platter and add remaining sauce.

serve with parmesan cheese
