Spaghetti puttanesca

Serves 6
Prep time: 20 minutes
Cooking time: 15 minutes

This is quick, healthy, easy, tasty and cheap meal with an amusing name which is a real conversation piece. Aptly named as busy "ladies", I often throw this together for sustenance. It has the full flavours of a traditional Italian dish but with products that are easily available at your local store.



  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 cloves chopped garlic
  • 1 chopped onion
  • 2 cans whole tomatoes
  • A handful of Italian parsley

  • 4 teaspoons capers
  • 2-3 cans of anchovies
  • 500 grams spaghetti (fresh or dried)
  • 3/4 cup of marsala or sweet sherry
