Pasta Sauce Recipe: Peter’s Pasta Puttenesca

This is my all-time favorite pasta sauce recipe.

Putta is the Italian word for prostitute, and this pasta sauce was named for them. Basically, when the prostitutes finished “working” in the early morning hours, they would go to the restaurants or trattorias to have pasta. The sauce was usually a little of this and that: anything that was left over from the regular customers.
