Prep Time: 15 minutes

Spaghetti alla puttanesca in Italian actually means “pasta in the style of the whore.” The name is derived from the Italian word ‘puttana’ meaning ‘whore’. There are many interpretations of this recipe, but my interpretation came from my family’s story dated back when being a prostitute was considered a legal job. The intense and delicious smell of this recipe’s sauce would lure men in from the street into the prostitutes’ ‘office’ for the night. Regardless of the recipe name’s origin, Puttanesca is a tasty and vibrant sauce that is great to keep in mind when you don’t have a lot of time to prepare a meal!
