Posting the recipe for tonight's dinner because how often do you have a chance to slather pasta sauce "the way a whore would make it" (Puttanesca) over angel hair (Capellini)?
Unless you're mired in a post-modern feminist critique, and right now I'd rather eat.
Pasta alla Puttanesca
1/2 cup virgin olive oil 1 can / 2 oz. anchovy fillets, undrained 4 cloves garlic, crushed (or dice 'em like I did) 1 can (35 oz.) plum tomatoes, drained 1 jar (2 1/2 oz.) capers, drained 1 1/2 cups pitted imported black olives, coarsely chopped (kalamatas work) coarsely ground black pepper, to taste
Place the oil, anchovies, and garlic in a heavy medium-size saucepan. Mash thoroughly to form a paste.
Add the tomatoes, capers, and olives. Stir, and heat to simmering over medium heat. Reduce the heat to low, and simmer, uncovered, for 1 hour, stirring occasionally. Season with pepper.
Serve over capellini. I put together a side of kale sauteed in garlic just to make sure we got our greens.
Recipe says serves two, but somehow we two wound up with leftovers.
