Spaghetti alla Puttanesca

This spaghetti dish, meaning "whore's spaghetti" in Italian, consists of a salty, spicy tomato sauce that proves a nice variation from the traditional marinara. It is usually made with anchovies, but I omitted them for this recipe. Buon appetito!

Sauce serves 2

What you need:

3 tbsp olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 onion, diced
1-2 chili peppers, minced
1 tbsp capers
3-4 tbsp black olives, sliced
5 tomatoes, grated
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp sugar
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 tsp fresh parsley
spaghetti noodles

In a saucepan on medium heat, sauté the onion and garlic in the olive oil for 10 minutes or until the garlic had just reached golden. Add the salt, pepper, sugar, diced chili peppers, olives, capers, and grated tomatoes and keep on medium heat for 15-20 minutes or until the sauce has thickened. Serve on spaghetti noodles and sprinkle fresh parsley on top.
