Spaghetti alla puttanesca

Jul 03 2011

This is a very easy recipe, whenever you get tired of the simple spaghetti with tomato sauce, add some tuna, olives and capers and here it is, the puttanesca…Do not mistaken puttanesca with puttana, which means slut LOL!

Anyway, I know that for American people it’s a little bit weird to have tuna in some kind of pasta sauce, but I ensure you it’s delicious! Try it!

INGREDIENTS (4 people):

  • 1lb spaghetti
  • 1 small can of tomato sauce or petite dice tomatoes
  • 3 small cans of tuna (doesn’t matter if it’s in water or oil) or a large one
  • kalamata olives
  • capers, the original recipe contains them, although variations exist
  • olive oil
  • half onion
  • red hot pepper flakes
  • oregano, some people like to add some
  • salt
