Altered ingredient amounts. Used canned Tuna in oil instead of anchovies cos didnt have any. I prefer the tuna in oil for its taste and then I use a little of the oil to flavour the dish with. Oh-and then my cat likes some too:-) - 13 Oct 2008

When I saw this recipe, I was like "who needs a recipe for Puttanesca?!" But it is good to be reminded how well anchovies, black olives and tomatoes go together...even though I used tuna instead of anchovies cos I didn't have any at the time. Classic! - 13 Oct 2008
