Puttasagna with Zucchini
August 11, 2013
Onion and anchovy first. Then a handful of olives and capers. Tomato paste. Then some crushed tomato and this sauce is ready. Thinly slicing zucchini. One layer in between every pasta layer. Brush the sauce on to keep it a light coating. Gahhhhhhhhyeaaaa. This tasted enough like my classic lasagna that I was addicted, but enough different that I was interested. Also oozy cheese. That's it for today from the pasta in my beard!
Puttasagna with ZucchiniFor: 8 People
- Tomato Paste
- Crushed Tomato
- Make a puttanesca sauce by sauteing some anchovy in with an onion before adding a few cloves of garlic. Then a handful of roughly chopped olives and capers, followed by a can of tomato paste. Stir that around a bit, then add in a large can of crushed tomatoes and stir letting it simmer for awhile. Toss in a cup or so of water to thin it out a litte, and add more capers and olives. Play around with the sauce and add the olives and capers and anchovies to your personal taste, depending on if you want this sauce to be super pungent or not.
- Then just layer up a normal lasagna with some sheets of pasta, sauce, ricotta and mozzarella, splicing in a layer of shaved zucchini in between every pasta layer. YUM!
