Due to the faceache/Instasham outage yesterday, I think this picture was one of the only ones available for a while as it’s got waaaaaaaaaaaay more likes than usual for a pretty rubbish photo 🤣

It was supposed to be puttanesca sauce. But I cut the veggies up too big, couldn’t be bothered to slice the olives and added too much water so it turned into a stew. Oh well. It tasted pretty good nonetheless.

For two portions you need

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tin chopped tomatoes
  • Handful green olives in chilli
  • 1 red pepper, cut into chunks
  • 1 onion, cut into chunks
  • 2 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
  • 1 red chilli, chopped
  • Handful flat leaf parsley, chopped
  • 2 tbsp capers
  • 2 tsp stock powder
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 2 tsp chilli flakes
  • salt and pepper
  • pasta to serve
  1. Begin by frying the onion, garlic and chilli in the oil for 2-3 mins.
  2. Add the pepper, olives and capers and cook for a further 2-3 mins.
  3. Add everything else apart from the parsley and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 5 mins until slightly thickened.
  4. Serve with pasta and a large glass of red (if it’s not a school night!).
