Puttanesca Sauce


If “alla puttanesca” literally means “of the whore” in Italian, well then this puttanesca has nothing to be ashamed of! We made a homemade puttanesca sauce at the amazing Saltbox Farm, and served it on top of a bed of hand rolled Tacconi pasta. The puttanesca is a tangy, somewhat salty, delicious Italian pasta dish. Enjoy!
