Spicy Spaghetti alla Puttanesca with Cashew Parmesan

I have a thing for spicy noodle sauces. A freshly cooked bolognese infatuates me just with its smell, while it is simmering on the stove.

This Puttanesca Sauce is just like that. I could take a bath in it. To make it vegan, I omit the anchovies, which are in an original Puttanesca and season it well with salt instead.

The olives come from a mix. They are marinated in herbs, garlic and oil. Also some capers are in the mix. So this is perfect for a Puttanesca. I bought this olive mix.

A glass of Sontino Sangiovese with this dish makes it perfect!

    Vielen lieben Dank für deine ganzen tollen Rezepte. Ich kann nur ahnen, wie viel Zeit und Arbeit dahinter steckt…
    Hast du Erfahrung mit der Aufbewahrung von dem Parmesan? Der müsste sich ja eigentlich ganz gut in einer kleinen Dose halten?

    Liebste Grüße Frances

      Hi Frances,
      ja, es ist viel Arbeit, die ich aber sehr gerne mache. Der Parmesan hält sich eine Weile. Lagere ihn nur besser im Kühlschrank!
      Liebe Grüße
