Here is my crazy good version of the fettuccine puttanesca. These pasta are just SO good and are even better when you make my fresh pasta recipe!


  • 450g fettuccine
  • Olive oil
  • 1 cup good quality black olive, coarsely chopped
  • 7 small anchovies fillets, chopped
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons capers, coarsely chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 small hot pepper, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup fresh flat parsley, coarsely chopped
  • Salt and ground pepper
  • 1 can ( 796ml ) of San Marzano tomatoes with basil leaves
  • Fresh pecorino ou parmesan, grated


  • In a big sauce pan filled with salty boilling water, cook the pasta al dente as per instructions on the box. Pour in a strainer, rince with cold water and drain well. Coat with olive oil, stir and set aside.
  • In a sauce pan at medium temp, heat a drizzle of olive oil and add the olives, anchovies, capers, garlic, hot pepper and half of the fresh parsley. Season with salt and pepper then cook while stirring for about 5 minutes.
  • Pour the tomatoes and break apart in small chunks with your hands. Stir well and let simmer for 4 minutes.
  • Add the pasta along with the rest of the parsley then cook for 2-3 minutes while stirring, just enough to heat everything and to coat the pasta with the crazy good sauce! Serve in big bowls, throw a ton of freshly grated cheese on top and garnish with some parsley!

My personal notes

Our wine stewards suggest

+- 15$ Château de Valcombe Cuvée Grand Valcombe Costières de Nîmes Syrah-Grenache

Wines coming from syrah grapes allow to make a perfect link with the black olives since this grape variety smells like pepper, violet and… olive!

+- 30$ Daumen Côtes du Rhône 2012

Jean-Paul Daumen is better known for it's Châteauneuf-du-Pape but he is also producing wines like this gem, mouthful, spicy and polyvalent.

Noire, Les Trois Mousquetaires

Black olives, anchovies, capers and tomatoes will match this black lager with aromas of coffee, roasted cereals and dark chocolate. The thinness of the beer will balance the salty taste of the dish.
