Recipe Fact
Puttanesca is a spicy Italian tomato sauce prepared with garlic, onions, anchovies, capers, ripe olives and oregano.
Puttanesca is traditionally served over pasta. This version, prepared with chicken and angle hair pasta, calls for green olives and omits the capers and anchovies.
Make It Special
To use fresh wax beans in this recipe, trim the ends and cut the beans into 1-inch pieces. Drop them into boiling salted water and simmer for 2 to 3 minutes, or until they are crisp-tender.
