Puttanesca….. where does this name came from….
Hmmm…na intriga ako kaya I made some research and found out some stories about this pasta sauce….
It has been told that Pasta Puttanesca invented and made by prostitutes, it is said that pasta puttanesca was designed to lure customers with its aroma. Other explanations have more appeal to the minimalist cook: that the prostitutes were too busy to cook much, or that they had no storage for fresh ingredients and cooked entirely from the pantry. Another legend said that it was a favorite not of prostitutes, but of women who wanted to serve a quick meal at home in order to move on to other things. Lots of stories noh?!
Whatever the stories is, this certainly is one very tasty sauce. My husband would definitely agree with that. Almost any type of pasta can be used here. I made this easy and satisfying dish for my no meat day in observance of Lent.
I posted my spaghetti alla puttanesca in my revive (nth time) food blog. If you want to try please visit my other blog
