A sauce with a spicy reputation, Puttanesca sauce is reputed to have been invented by prostitutes, hence the name. Some say it was designed to lure customer with its powerful aroma while others say its name comes from it being a sauce that is quick, easy and a little spicy. Whatever the origin, all we know is it’s delicious and one of our favourite sauces!
Zara’s Putanesca sauce is made with whole Italian plum tomatoes, capers, olives, anchovy and conservatively spiced with red chilli flakes. We hope you like it as much as we do.
PASTA SUGGESTION: Pairs perfectly with lots of our fresh or dry pastas, including our fresh Spaghetti or Casarecce and countless dry long and short cuts of pasta.
