Pasta Puttanesca

I've also loved Puttanesca, but it isn't something I make often. In fact, since starting this blog more than 2 years ago, I've only made it once. I had black olives that needed to be used up and I needed a quick meal after a rough day at work, so it made sense.

I love the saltiness of this meal, between the capers, anchovies and olives. It was quick and easy, which was good since I'm in some pain right now. I've been planning a huge conference at work that starts this week (I'll be gone Wednesday to Sunday) and today I was rushing around trying to get some things done while my lunch was heating up. I was carrying a heavy box and ended up falling down the stairs. I twisted both my ankles, I already have a bruise on my left side and back and the back of my left thigh hurts as well. Basically my whole body is starting to ache. Good times!
Pin It!


  1. eeek...sorry about the fall!!!!

    maybe you can use it as an excuse to get out of the conference :)

  2. Oh no!!! I hope you are okay!

    On a better note - I've been CRAVING pasta and this looks so good!

  3. Oh dear--I hope you feel better!

  4. Hope you feel better soon!

    That pasta dish looks like comfort food to me!

  5. Still have never made this. Want to.

    And oh honey. :( :( :( I hope you're doing okay over there. Sending you lots of love and hugs.

  6. This looks delicious! And I hope you heal soon!

  7. longhair - Thanks! I'm OK...but unfortunately there was no way I could get out of the conference since I was the planner. :)

    Katie, kitchenbelle, Patsyk - I'm fine, thanks!

    Melissa - It's a good dish. And thanks for thinking of me. I'm doing much better.

    Colleen - I'm on the mend, thanks!

  8. Yum, yum, yum. I made this a few weeks ago! Your pictures of the roast chicken made my mouth water and you are evil for posting the bacon and egg quesadilla because now I am going to obsess over it until I try it. I'm so glad I found your blog! I'll check back often!

  9. Me again! I finally posted about the award you gave me - thanks again!
