Puttanesca like you’ve never had it before…
This dish is full of fabulous flavor, tangy salty and oh so delicious.
This is such a fun twist on a classic puttanesca.
This is full of lemon!
You know how much I love lemon don’t you, and I know many are right there with me on my lemon “CRAZE” I link to other lemon recipes at the bottom of this post.
It all starts with garlic, onions and olive oil.
The aroma of these cooking in the kitchen always has everyone running to the kitchen wanting to know what’s cooking.
What else is in this dish?
Let me tell you,
there is chicken and tomatoes and olives and capers and anchovy paste along with lemon juice.
And of course pasta!
You can make this dish as spicy as you like, just add more crushed red pepper.
The sauce for this is increased with some pasta water, it’s starchy enough to add to the lemon juice and juice form olives and capers to balance the flavor.
