If you don't know the age-old tale of pasta puttanesca (our favorite rendition, at least), gather round. It's said that Italian "streetwalkers" ? of yore, of course ? invented this dish for three reasons: 1. The busy ladies didn't have time to go shopping and had to cook with basic kitchen staples 2. They weren't allowed in the market anyway, and 3. The seductively salty, spicy and sweet fragrance of the sauce cooking would entice men into their houses. We proudly make this dish in honor of these gals who did us the greatest service of all: Instilling an undying love of anchovies. http://www.foodrepublic.com/2011/07/25/pasta-puttanesca-recipe
