Pasta Puttanesca
 
Description

Legend has it that this pasta dish was concocted by ladies of the evening after work was done, perhaps because it is both fast and spicy. At any rate, it is a perfect quick meal that has more than its share of flavor. Anchovies are a traditional ingredient and a source of omega-3 fatty acids, so use them if you like their flavor.

 
Ingredients

5-6 cups fresh tomatoes, peeled, seeded and crushed (or use two 28-ounce cans Italian tomatoes, drained and crushed)
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon dried hot red pepper flakes
1 1/2 tablespoons capers, drained and rinsed
3 tablespoons black olives (Kalamata or oil-cured), pitted and chopped
1 tablespoon garlic, minced
2 tablespoons fresh basil leaves, minced
4 anchovy fillets, minced (optional)
1 pound dried penne pasta
3/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated

 
Instructions

1. In a large bowl, combine the tomatoes, olive oil, red pepper flakes, capers, olives, garlic and basil. Let stand at room temperature for 1 hour.

2. Cook the pasta in rapidly boiling water until al dente. Drain well.

3. Toss the hot pasta with the tomato mixture. Add the grated Parmesan cheese and serve immediately.
