    Farfalle alla Puttanesca

    Autumn is already here; it’s time for comfort food and baking. But we still need 10-minute meals, which are both healthy and delicious. This category is dominated by pasta recipes, which I think everyone craves. Today’s recipe, farfalle alla puttanesca, is one of my most beloved ones. Fast, very tasty and with beloved ingredients. Tomatoes, olives, capers, garlic, olive oil, basil; whatever the Mediterranean diet stands for, on a plate.

    The classic puttanesca recipe also contains a few fillets of anchovies finely chopped. They fit a lot, giving a delicious flavor, without being “fishy”, as is the case of the Ceasar salad. But unfortunately I am the only one eating them at home, so … they are omitted.. I would suggest you try it.
