Expert Tips

  • 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.
  • 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.
