Sugo alla puttanesca, Puttanesca Sauce

Am running this week's blogging marathon with 'Italian Sauces', and this week's posts are going to be some delicious, flavoursome rich sauces. I couldnt think more than making this simple sauce for this week's theme. I grabbed this sauce from Itaian Food Forever. The author of the site says that the story behind this dish is that it was created by street walkers around Naples, Italy after a long evening at work. Those workers prepared this dish just by throwing easily available ingredients quickly which was cheap.
