Puttanesca or Kalamata Kwik Sauce

Rated as 4.52 out of 5 Stars

"This is a great quick pasta sauce, full of flavor. Ladle onto short pasta with a generous spoonful of Pecorino Romano cheese. This is not intended to be a sauce that you smother the pasta in. If the fresh tomatoes aren't garden fresh and full of flavor I would consider omitting them from the recipe."

This was too hot. I think I am pretty tolerant of spicy foods but this was just too dog-goned hot! I would cut the pepper flakes to 1/2 tsp. & then it might be good.

Excellent! Very spicy with that much red pepper flakes - weaklings might want to cut it in half. I used oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes and was able to omit the olive oil from the recipe and it ...

Excellent recipe.Made just two changes,added a pinch of ground basil, and plumped up the sun-dried tomatoes with a 1/2 cup of dry red wine.Served it over thin pasta.
