Use olives and other larder ingredients plus the fresh vegetables you have on hand for a fragrant and spicy meal. It’s a lighter version of Pasta Puttanesca that’s more suitable for summer. I made it as the last meal during a friends’ cabin weekend. It was good enough to trigger planning for our next gathering! (Get our Weekend-Away Menu here.)
I give exact proportions below so I can show you the cost and nutrition information, but feel free to improvise. This recipe is vegan and can be gluten-free if you choose a gluten-free base. It goes well with a higher-protein dessert such as Vegan Chocolate Cherry Ice Cream.
Pasta Puttanesca said to have been made by ladies of the evening to attract customers with its pungent aroma. Wikipedia says it became popular in the 1960s and has been featured in Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events and the TV show Person of Interest.
