Easy and delicious. It's a hit with guests everytime we make it. The only difficulty is finding bucatini; we use spaghetti instead.Read More
In the video of 'Bucantini Puttanesca', after you added the pasta, you added olive oil. This step is missing in the recipe. Is it necessary?, if so how much oil?
This dish was outstanding!!!! Although I left out the anchovies, the pasta was full of flavor and even better as a leftover! I only had 1.5 pints of tomatoes, but that was plenty. Only suggestion would be to only start with 1/2 t. of crushed red pepper if you have non-spicy eaters.Read More
I was surprised at how tasty this came out. The sauce seemed a little bland before the fresh herbs, capers, and olives were introduced. I wonder if another anchovy filet might up the flavor quotient a bit? Nevertheless, it turned out great. The directions say it only takes 25 minutes to prepare. I don't know why I'm always so much slower than what they say. I would say it took about 45 minutes to prepare.Read More
Delicious bold flavors come together in one pan. I love how the pasta cooks right in with the rest of the ingredients. I wish I could do that will all my pasta dishes. I'm pretty stingy with my 5-star ratings, but would've given this one 5 stars except for my husband didn't love it. He said it was "ok", which is surprising since he likes all the main ingredients.Read More
How much did the tomatoes weigh please as I can't find the answer anywhere. I live in the UK and tomatoes are sold by weight over here.Read More
I really loved this dish and it will be added to my regular dinner repertoire. I had never seen dried pasta added straight into the sauce like this, without pre-cooking it. Three pints of cherry tomatoes is an awful lot, so I did sub one pint for some canned diced tomatoes. Make sure you serve this with a good crusty bread for sopping up the wonderful juices.Read More
This produced as promised. Came together quickly; loved the one-pot pasta method. We did cut back a bit on the the red peppers, and husband suggested adding a can of tuna next time. Will do!Read More
This was not only simple to make, it tasted amazing!!! I used anchovy paste instead of the anchovies and it gave the dish a real richness. The only thing I would do different next time is cut back on the red pepper flakes.
This was delicious!! I was leery at first of the one-pan method, but due to its short cooking time and the fact that I had all the ingredients on hand (thick spaghetti rather than bucatini). I am glad I did. I followed the recipe but used the whole box (12 oz is very hard to measure out) and omitted the anchovies. So I had to use more broth, and cook it longer. I was unsure if there should be any broth left, and didn't want the pasta to stick to the pan, so left a little. The little broth left added to the smoothness of the sauce. I did have to break the spaghetti in half to fit it in the pan. Finally, I had cherry tomatoes measured in pounds/ounces, not sold in pints. That required quite a bit of research and figuring! Even with all of those little problems, this went together easily and was really delicious.It also reheated well with a bit of broth added. I will definitely make this again.Read More
I made this tonight for my football player son. He went from "I don't like olives and uncooked tomatoes and where is the meat?" to "Can I have seconds?" I used bucatini noodles and we felt like they were quite "al dente" so next time I will increase the cooking time. It took me longer than the 24 minutes listed as prep and cook time. Overall great recipe and I will repeat it.Read More
