“Look at that,” He said pointing at one of the dishes on the menu.
I don’t wear reading glasses (yet!) but imagine me leaning in, squinting my eyes to see what his little finger was pointing at.
“Puttanesca.” I read. “What?”
“It says puta-nesca” He said grinning to himself as he slowly read out the word, emphasising the first two syllables.
Of course I feigned ignorance & said I didn’t get it which seemed to satisfy him. It wasn’t about me understanding what he had stubbled across, it was more about him pointing it out to me.
Cheeky bugger. 😉
More by luck than judgment, I had everything I needed to make this in the fridge. I roasted a red pepper and 3 halved & cored tomatoes. Then sautéed a large onion with a tin of anchovies & about 20 pitted black olives. Finally, I put the roasted veg & a handful of capers in with the onion mixture & put the whole lot threw the food processor until it was thick & smooth.
