Spaghetti Alla Puttanesco (Uncooked Version)

Introduction

I've had this recipe for years and cannot remember where I got it. You just can't ask for anything faster or more refreshing, especially on those hot summer days when you don't want to heat up the kitchen.This is not low fat/calorie.

Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    1/4 cup nicoise olives (or gaeta olives or kalamata olives)
    2 1/2 lbs tomatoes, vine ripened
    1 1/4 cups extra virgin olive oil
    2 garlic cloves, large chopped
    8 leaves fresh basil, torn in small pieces
    1 tablespoon flat leaf parsley, chopped
    1 tablespoon capers, small, drained
    1 pinch crushed red pepper flakes
    1 lb spaghetti

Tips

Sometimes I use cherry tomatoes cut in halves.If you like, add 1 teaspoon anchovy paste, or to taste, to the sauce ingredients upfront. For those who have to have a meal with meat add frozen, peeled and deveined, cooked shrimp. Serve with bruschetta or garlic bread and a green salad (romaine, scallions and cucumber with an anchovy vinaigrette.


Directions

pit the olives and cut them into small slices. Place the tomatoes in a serving bowl. Add the olives and remaining sauce ingredients to the tomatoes with 1/2 teaspoon salt and mix well. Let the sauce marinate for at least 1 hour at room temperature to give the flavors time to develop, or cover and chill in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

Cook the spaghetti until al dente. Drain the pasta and toss thoroughly with the sauce in serving bowl. Serve at room temperature.



Serving Size: Makes 8 1-cup servings
