Pasta alla Puttanesca

Occasionally I scroll through this site and think...hmmm, where is a recipe for this or that. Based on how hungry I am at the time! Or what I was hoping to make for the family or my team for lunch or dinner! So this is such a recipe. A light and simple lunch that can easily be whipped up in around 10-15 minutes with pretty much stuff you probably have in the cupboard or fridge already. Pasta all Puttanesca. The origins of the name are sketchy and something to do with prostitution. I'm guessing pasta kept the girls full of energy... #facepalm You can read all about it HERE. If you must. In the meantime, it is just delish.
