Tried this for the first time this evening. Tomatoes,olive oil,kalmata olives, garlic, anchovies and capers. Tastes excellent, this one's a keeper.

That really does look good!  I'd love to try it, have you got a bit more of a recipe breakdown for a neophyte like me?

Quite ironic that "Cathouse" Willy would be the one to put out a Puttenesca recipe!

Just wanted to let you know that I made your sauce, really enjoyed it.  I ended up making a big batch so I've got a couple more meals of it yet.  I also made some home made linguini pasta to go along.  Very tasty, the anchovies gives it a unique but good taste, thanks.
