  • Summary

    The intense flavors and aromas of puttanesca sauce, which relies on pantry staples such as olives, capes, and red-pepper flakes, are perfectly complemented by bucatini -- thick, hollow spaghetti-like strands, similar to perciatelli. Adapted from from the book "Lucinda's Rustic Italian Kitchen," by Lucinda Scala Quinn (Wiley).

    Ingredients

    • 1 1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    • 2 garlic cloves, minced
    • 1/2 cup black olives, such as Gaeta or nicoise, rinsed, pitted, and thinly sliced
    • 1/2 cup Italian-style green olives, rinsed, pitted, and coarsely chopped
    • 3 tablespoons capers, preferably salt-packed, thoroughly soaked and rinsed
    • 1/2 teaspoon red-pepper flakes, plus more for garnish
    • 1 can (28 ounces) best-quality tomatoes, half pureed, half roughly crushed
    • 1 sprig fresh basil, plus more for garnish
    • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
    • Coarse salt
