Pasta Puttanesca

A classic Italian pasta in 15 - 20 minutes!

Recipe for four:
1 packet penne pasta
1 red onion, chopped
1 can Eden crushed tomatoes
3 roasted red peppers, chopped
2 T capers
1 c kalamata olives, chopped
4 fillets anchovy, chopped
4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1/2 c olive oil
Pinch chili flakes
Salt and pepper
1/2 bunch Italian parsley, rough chopped
Grated Parmesan, for serving

First, get the salted pasta water going, then add the pasta when boiling.

Saute the onion in a large saute pan with a little olive oil, cook until soft over medium high heat.  When soft add the garlic, olives, capers, anchovies, salt and pepper and chili flakes.  Stir and cook for a minute or two, then add the tomato sauce and lower the heat to medium low.

Drain the pasta and return it to the pot with some olive oil and toss.  Serve the pasta onto warm plates with the sauce.  Grate the cheese on top and garnish with the parsley.  It's that easy...

Bon Appetit!  Chef Hobbes
