We won’t tell you what puttanesca means in Italian – you've got to look that one up for yourself. But we will tell you that you’ll love this fresh, tangy, slightly salty, Southern Italian pasta dish. We put a twist on the classic with a fresh tomato sauce you make yourself, and toasted pine nuts, but kept the tradition alive with garlic, olives, and capers. Buon appetito!

Before You Cook

  • Step 1 - Prepare the Ingredients

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Coarsely chop grape tomatoes. Mince garlic. Coarsely chop capers. Rinse olives and halve. Stem and coarsely chop oregano. Halve baguette lengthwise.

  • Step 2 - Make the Tomato Sauce

    Make the Tomato Sauce

    In a small mixing bowl, combine chopped tomatoes, capers, olives, half the garlic (or to taste) (reserve remaining for garlic bread), and half the oregano (reserve remaining for garnish). Add 2 Tbsp. olive oil and season with ¼ tsp. salt and ¼ tsp. pepper. Stir until well combined and set aside for flavors to marry.

  • Step 3 - Make Garlic Bread and Toast Pine Nuts

    Make Garlic Bread and Toast Pine Nuts

    Combine 1 Tbsp. olive oil and remaining garlic in a small bowl. Spread on cut sides of baguette and place on one side of prepared baking sheet. Bake 5 minutes, remove from oven, and add pine nuts to other side of baking sheet. Bake until bread and pine nuts are toasted, 5-6 minutes. Pine nuts toast quickly. As soon as you detect the aroma of toasted nuts, remove from oven to avoid burning. While bread bakes, cook pasta.

  • Step 4 - Cook the Pasta

    Cook the Pasta

    Add pasta to boiling water and cook, stirring often, until al dente, 3-5 minutes. Reserve ½ cup pasta cooking water before draining. Stir tomato paste into reserved water in a small bowl or measuring cup. Drain pasta in colander and return to pot.

  • Step 5 - Finish the Pasta

    Finish the Pasta

    Add tomato sauce and reserved pasta water-tomato paste mixture to pot with cooked pasta. Toss until well combined. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

  • Step 6 - Plate the Dish

    Plate the Dish

    Serve pasta on a plate next to garlic bread. Garnish with pine nuts and remaining oregano.
