Classic Puttanesca with tomatoes is a house favorite and part of my first cookbook Family & Friends. Now it is joined by a green version of the classic dish, Tagliatelle with Puttanesca Verde. Pasta is always a little jewel.
What can I say of classic puttanesca sauce that has not already been said with my favorite Oven Puttanesca Recipe. Now it’s time to add another version, this time think green. I love new takes on classic recipes, after all “food fads come and go, but the Bijouxs remain.” I have amassed a collection of pasta recipes on the blog over the 9 years and this one with olives is a favorite. But now, Puttanesca Verde comes in and adds depth to this classic dish.
Greens are a favorite in the Bijouxs Kitchen along with olives, so they are natural companions for this dish. I always love the rustic, simple pan sauce pasta recipes- quick, flexible, economical and tasty.
There is not much to prepare this little jewel, boil water for the pasta and start the sauce. I used a whole wheat tagliatelle, to add an additional level of flavor.
The browns and greens of the dish speak of Fall, with robust flavors for the season.
Look on the recipe card for COOK’S NOTES, with simple substitutions and hints.
Join me in welcoming a new robust little jewel to the kitchen.
