Pasta Puttanesca: The Remix

I was watching Rachael Ray and she made one of my fave sauces. Puttanesca is probably the easiest Italian sauce: Garlic, olive oil, big can of tomatoes, oil-cured black olives and anchovies. Add some red pepper flakes and basil and it’s all good. Normally I make it as a side with chicken or chops. Rachael substituted tuna in oil for the anchovies. I was resistant at first, but last night I decided to give it a shot. (I kept the anchovies in as well since I had them on hand.) It was delish, you don’t really taste the tuna, and of course the addition turns it from a side to a entree for very little money. I mean, come on, what’s cheaper than tuna? By my calculations I fed the three of us (Including whole wheat pasta) for less than $7.00, total. I’m delighted to add this one to my budget friendly recipe arsenal.
