One Pan Pasta Puttanesca

Updated: Sep 20, 2021

This delicious and super easy Pasta Puttanesca combines all the quintessential healthy Mediterranean diet ingredients: tomato, olives, capers, garlic and anchovies along with olive oil which is anti-inflammatory. I was a little apprehensive going into this because I have never cooked this pasta dish in one pan. Being Italian I thought I knew the best way to make pasta but as it turns out this was easy to do, clean up was a breeze and the pasta was delicious!

  1. ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil

  2. 3 cloves of garlic peeled and crushed

  3. 3 small anchovy fillets (omit if vegetarian)

  4. 1½ teaspoon dried oregano

  5.  crushed red pepper to taste (depending on how spicy you like your food)

  6. 4 cups chicken broth

  7. up to 1 cup water

  8. 12 oz gluten-free spaghetti (I used Barilla)

  9. 3 cups organic multicolored cherry, halved (about 1½ pints)

  10. 3 – 4 tablespoons plain tomato paste

  11. ¼ cup fresh basil, chopped

  12. ¼ cup fresh parsley, chopped

  13. 24 pitted Kalamata olives, chopped

  14. 1  tablespoons capers

  1. Heat a large, deep non-stick sauté pan over medium heat. (I like my Blue Diamond pan a lot!)

  2. Add oil to pan; swirl to coat.

  3. Add garlic, anchovies, oregano, and red pepper; cook 2 minutes, use a wooden spoon to break up anchovies.

  4. Add broth. Bring to a boil. Add spaghetti to pan, lower heat to medium and cook 6- 8 minutes, stirring frequently, especially at first to keep spaghetti from sticking together. 

  5. Tip: If the pasta is absorbing the broth and not cooking enough or you feel you want more sauce, add water ¼ cup at a time and stir in. 

  6. Add tomatoes and tomato paste. Cook an additional 2 to 3 minutes or until pasta is al dentè and tomatoes warmed and blistering..

  7. Remove pan from heat, add remaining ingredients, toss to combine and serve with freshly shaved Parmesan cheese.
