My one very go-to pasta dish for simple weeknight meals is food puttanesca. I could eat this sauce with a containerful, any day of the hebdomad, with zip but a idle of curmudgeonly simoleons to mop up the deliciously tasteful, water puddles.
Since one cannot eat gelt for every exclusive nourishment of the day (or so I've been told), I buy real corking food to pitch it with. It's a sensible provision I made with myself, symmetric though these ostensibly individual shapes* value a luck.
In example you were wondering: Yes, they're worth it. Unless you neaten your own pasta on a labouring weeknight, which makes you a (slightly brainsick) competition.
I expect a white food puttanesca is easily a year-round supply, but with plentifulness of crunchy tomatoes on the market during season I sometimes perceive a little… Uninspired? By making dishes with jarred ones.
I picked up a jar of anchovies the new day and since both capers and achromatic olives are wise their own substance forgather in our lodging, I had everything for our favourite alimentation on mitt.
I pulled out the jar of pelati move in the round drawer of my European-style openly comprehendible larder (this is the churrigueresco way to narrate someone you don't know a pantry, but keep your staples in a deuce of kitchen boxers) - and stared at it.
