take a ride in the sky.

Yeah I made this up, there's no such thing. Should have olives too but the requester of this recipe thinks he doesn't like olives. Or ginger. Or beans. Or chickpeas. Or, or, or. Sauce/pasta ratio is approximate.


puttanesca alla siciliana/arizoniana.

2 good quality anchovy filets
3 tbsp olive oil
1 large carrot, chopped small
1 fresh red chili pepper, seeded and finely chopped
3 large cloves garlic, very thinly sliced or chopped
2 cans high-quality Italian tomatoes
1 tbsp raw sugar
3 or 4 tbsp capers, drained and chopped if large 
zest of one small orange, or half of one large orange, duh, minced fine, and maybe a little juice too if it's a delicious orange
pinch smoked paprika
Salt and pepper to taste
450g spaghetti or bucatini

A few leaves of basil, torn
A handful of flat-leaf parsley tops, chopped
1/2 cup hazelnuts, toasted, skinned, salted, and chopped roughly
1/2 cup Pecorino or Parmesan, grated

Melt the anchovies in the olive oil. Add the carrot and saute for 5 minutes, add chili pepper and garlic and saute for one minute, not burning your garlic. Add tomatoes, sugar, capers, orange zest and smoked paprika, simmer for 15 minutes or until carrot is not crunchy and tomatoes taste good, if you buy good tomatoes 15 minutes should be enough. SALT TO TASTE, shit is already salty because of the anchovies and capers. Cook pasta in well-salted water. Serve with parsley, basil, hazelnuts and cheese on top. Serves....3? 2?
