How to Make Pasta Putanesca

One of my absolute favorite pasta sauces using ingredients that make up the heart of Mediterranean cooking.


  1. I've usually had putanesca with more hot spice, but maybe the alcaparones make up for it.

    Here's my favorite food blog. Written by a young American woman, concentrating on mostly Middle-Eastern food (she's lived and travelled there and knows her stuff.)


  2. Thanks for the heads up on the cooking blog. I like this guy a lot: http://foodwishes.blogspot.com.es/

    The three cayenne peppers I put in this made it a bit spicy. Before I make a video these days I research the dish to make it as traditional as possible. I look on youtube for the oldest Italian grandmother and sort of begin there. Italians definitely eat spicy food a lot more than the Spanish as just about every recipe for putanesca calls for a chile pepper or two.
