    Pasta for whores

    Pasta alla puttanesca or pasta in the style of the whores. Many stories of how it got its name, who knows which one is true. All i know is it's bloody awesome, uses stuff you usually have in your pantry, and takes 15 minutes at most.

    Your proffered pasta, enough for 2-3 people
    1/4 cup of olive oil (no seriously)
    1/4 cup capers, minced
    1/4 cup pitted black olives, minced
    5 cloves garlic, minced
    1 tsp chilli flakes or paste or an equal amount of your favourite fresh chilli, minced
    1 can (95g) of tuna, drained
    1 cup tomato puree or crushed tomatoes
    6 anchovy fillets, minced into a paste
    Handful of chopped parsley

    Get your pasta cooking, add oil to a pan and once hot add your anchovies and garlic and cook for a minute until garlic goes brown around the edges and it becomes fragrant, add your olives, capers, chilli and tuna. Cook a further minute or two, add tomato, reduce heat and allow to simmer. When pasta is 2 minutes away from being done, spoon into sauce with the heat on, allowing some of the cooking water to go into the sauce (this will both thicken and emulsify your sauce) stir constantly, adjusting with pasta water as needed until pasta is cooked to your liking. Add parsley and serve with a bit of parmesan and fresh olive oil on top.

    I like your writing style Angus, always very clear and concise.
    Going to give this a go when I get home as it looks really good.
    Good luck with your move to Auckland by the way.

    It's a very pungent recipe so definitely something you want everyone on board for. But my god if you're into these kinds of ingredients it's an experience.

    The stories i've heard are that it was designed to feed the prostitutes in the wee hours of the morning when you wouldn't want a full spread of ingredients out, that prostitutes were forbidden to walk around during the day so they'd buy ingredients that'd last a long time, and that it was a dish so pungent it'd entice customers in from long distances. And the obvious one we're all thinking of, heh.

    If you're making more than two servings, when adjusting ingredients don't go higher than 1/2 a cup of oil cos it won't emulsify so well. Hope you enjoy it

    Well the sicilians are big on their fish, especially anchovies.
    They eat them pickled with rasins and onions on toast.
