Reviewed Nonna Maria's Spaghetti alla Puttanesca

Sunday, Mar 30, 2014 on Cooking Channel

"Wow!! I've tried other recipes for Pasta Puttanesca, but this is a keeper! When I saw the walnuts as an ingredient, I thought "Huh?" But it really does suit the recipe and adds a healthy protein option. I added a splash of zinfandel (the bev I served with dinner) and before adding the pasta. Yums! Thank you, David!"

"Really yummy!! Just because I'm me, I increased the spice amounts by half. Next time, to avoid ending up with coriander seed husks even after much blenderizing, I will use ground coriander instead. Unbelievable it could be so good without any salt!"

"Really great idea--I never would have thought of combining almond with coffee. I tried it with marshmallow vodka and used more espresso and almond. Next time I'll add a little ginger--yums!!"

"I turn to this recipe time and time again. It's such a delicious way to enjoy a relatively low-fat meat and such a departure from the run of the mill. I didn't have the recipe for the essence, but it's also terrifically great without it!"

"Wooh!! I added too much jalapeno, so I diluted with tonic water, used milk on my burning lips. Don't know how those heat seekers do it. I rubbed cucumber on the rim of the glass to wet it for salt.

"This makes a tasty, healthy vegetable soup. I added four cloves of minced garlic to the onions toward the end of the saute time, and I used two bay leaves instead of one. The soup just smells so good while it's cooking--this is comfort food that isn't fattening.""

Monday, Jan 2, 2012 on Cooking Channel

"The sauce I created by painstakingly following this recipe tasted just like Hershey's chocolate syrup--except Hershey's isn't gritty. You can save time by just mixing chocolate syrup into your prosecco.""
