Pasta puttanesca

Pasta puttanesca

This one-pot puttanesca makes a really easy midweek meal for one. The pasta soaks up the flavours, and the starch makes the sauce rich and creamy

  1. Step 1

    Put everything except the stock in a small pan with a small pinch of salt, and a good grind of black pepper.
  2. Step 2

    Add enough stock to just cover the pasta: how much will depend on how big the pan is. Bring to a gentle simmer. Cook for 8-12 minutes, stirring the pasta occasionally to coat in the sauce.
  3. Step 3

    Simmer until the pasta is tender and the liquid reduced to a sauce. Serve with more basil if you like.
