Paleo Bellissimo

Being paleo doesn't always have to mean that dinner will be a big lump of meat and some salad. As nice as that is, there are times you want something lighter.
Putanesca sauce is a punchy, aromatic sauce that goes fantastically well with sweet potato spaghetti and (like all my recipes) its a breeze to cook.

Look at the Spaghetti Bolognese recipe for how to do the sweet potato spaghetti to go with it.


1 Can chopped tomatoes.
4 Cloves of garlic (smashed)
1/4 to 1 tsp chilli flakes (depending on how hot you like it).
1 Small can of anchoves. (Chopped).
A handful of black olives (Halved).
2 Tbsp capers.
A handful of basil(chopped). (Or 1tbsp of dried).
4 inch squirt of tomato puree.
Half a can of water.
A tsp balsamic vinegar.
Non virgin olive oil

Heat the oil in a pan, add the basil, chilli, black pepper and garlic. Stir for about 30 seconds.
Add the olives, capers and anchovies, stir for 2 minutes.
Add the tomato puree, stir a minute, then add the vinegar, tomatoes and half the tomato can of water.
Bring to the boil, then simmer uncovered for 20 minutes.

Tip over the pasta (Its also nice on chicken breasts) and serve.
