- 1 cup onions, chopped
- 3 tablespoons fresh minced garlic
- 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (optional)
- 8 sun-dried tomatoes, softened and chopped
- 1 tablespoon capers
- 1 (23-ounce) can diced tomatoes
- 1/3 cup kalamata olives, pitted and quartered
- In a small saucepan, sauté the onions until soft, then add the garlic, red pepper flakes, and oregano and sauté for 2-3 more minutes.
- Add the diced and sun-dried tomatoes, capers, and olives. Cover and simmer for 5-10 minutes, stirring often.
Puttanesca sauce can be used to top fish, meat, or pasta. Or add cooked chicken or shrimp to the sauce, if desired, while simmering.
