Heard a great-sounding recipe on the radio today, for a puttanesca sauce, uncooked, with many of my favorite ingredients.

So of course I came home and made it!

The Sauce:

Fresh tomatoes, black olives, capers, a bulb of garlic, some anchovies, and a generous handful of parsley. Chop coarsely, mix together, drizzle with some Extra Virgin olive oil and let sit at room temperature for half an hour or so.

Cook your pasta while you stare at your creation and sob:

Penne works well for a coarsely-chopped topping like this.

Drain al dente pasta, toss with sauce, sprinkle liberally with a dry, aged grated cheese (in this case a local goat cheese reminiscent of an Italian pecorino,) garnish with some lemon slices and splash with a squeeze of the juice.
