Sluttishly Easy: Slut's Pasta

Pasta Puttanesca, or Slut's Pasta as I like to call it, is a feisty, bold, slapper of a dish. The sauce is named after certain, er, "ladies of the night", and it involves gutsy ingredients - think anchovies, garlic, olives and chilli - in a rich tomato sauce. It doesn't make for sophisticated eating, but it's a great storecupboard standby that can be rustled up without too much effort. Just don't blame me if you find yourself cursing at people like a bawdy nightwalker after eating it...

Slut's Pasta (serves 2 sluts)

You'll need:
  • 1 clove of garlic, finely chopped (or grated if you can't be arsed)
  • 1 red chilli, finely chopped
  • 6 anchovy fillets
  • A handful of black olives, pitted
  • 1 tbsp capers
  • 400ml tin of chopped tomatoes
  • 150g pasta, I used fusilli as it has lots of ridges to hold the sauce
  • Fresh basil, ripped up, to serve
Make it!
  • Heat a pan and add some olive oil. If you've bought anchovy fillets in oil, then use a bit of that.
  • Add the garlic and chilli, cook gently for a few minutes.
  • Add the anchovies, olives and capers. Fry for a few more minutes until the anchovies melt down to a paste.
  • Add the tomatoes and leave the sauce to simmer.
  • Cook the pasta according to the packet instructions.
  • Drain the pasta, toss it in the sauce and scatter the basil over. I don't add salt or parmesan to this recipe as the anchovies are salty enough by themselves, but feel free to if you like.
