Pasta: Fit for a 'ho. Spaghetti ala Puttanesca
Spaghetti Puttanesca is super-quick and very delicious. Plus it's fun to say Puttanesca, which means in the style of a whore. I've read that the name comes from the fact that hookers used to cook it to lure in customers or because it's spicy or because you can cook it up quickly in the time between tricks. Or maybe because it's so darn easy. It's ready in the time it takes spaghetti to boil. So get a pot boiling. This makes enough for 2, but easily doubles for 2. How much pasta you use depends on how much you like. So boil as much as you like per person.
Then put a little olive oil in a skillet and sprinkle in some red pepper flakes, turn the heat on low.
Now get to work on the garlic and anchovies.
Mince a couple of cloves of garlic
