Tagliatelle alla Puttanesca

Pasta is one of my favorite dishes ever. When I was a kid I was always happiest when my mom served spaghetti for lunch. Since then I was experimenting with new recipes, using the local products, seasonal veggies - by trial and errors method I have invented and collected the best ones. Adding and removing specific ingredients from originals recipes, trying to get well balanced, rich in flavor meals. The fact where you live has a very big impact to that what you cook and how you eat. I am happy to be surrounded by see, to leave in the sunshine land so I am sharing with you my pimped Tagliatelle alla Puttanesca.
