July 24,2015 I posted pasta puttanesca — the summer version — you don’t cook the sauce, just toss the ingredients. Here’s the winter version which is just as delicious and easy, easy easy!!! I used Rachael Ray’s recipe but honestly there’s a million puttanesca recipes online. Just google it.
The Divas “dish” on Mimi’s dish. Mimi: What can I say? When I’m feeling lazy (that’s my version of being a “bad girl”), this is a go to meal. Other than using Kalamata olives, I followed Rachael’s recipe to the letter. Some people don’t serve this with grated cheese because anchovies and cheese don’t go together. I kind of like the cheese. Sue: In our family, serving the cheese would be a big no no! Traditional Italians do not put cheese on this pasta. When I make it I leave the capers out — no one in our family likes capers. Cheese? … capers? … like I always say: “to each his own”.
