Pasta Alla Puttanesca
Pasta Alla puttanesca is an Italian pasta dish that was invented in Naples. Its ingredients typically include tomatoes, olive oil, olives, capers and garlic. Who doesn’t love Italian? Italian dishes are comforting, flavorful, and when made the right way… highly nutritious. My take on pasta alla puttanesca is gluten free, vegan, and entirely homemade.
