Traditional Spaghetti alla Puttanesca from Ischia Island

Many stories exist about this Italian culinary traditional recipe, called Pasta alla Puttanesca. The most accredited says that the first bite of spaghetti alla puttanesca dates back to the 50s in Ischia (one of the most picturesque islands in the Bay of Naples) by Sandro Petti, owner of the famous Rangio Fellone restaurant. One evening he was about to close the restaurant, and he was asked by a group of customers to prepare them a meal. He was low on ingredients and told them he did not have enough to make them a meal. They complained that it was late and they were hungry, saying “Facci una puttanata qualsiasi,” meaning “throw together whatever.” Petti had only a few tomatoes, olives, and some capers, common ingredients in an Italian pantry. So he used them to prepare the sauce for a dish of Spaghetti. Lately, he included this dish on her restaurant’s menu naming it Spaghetti alla Puttanesca.

Flourless Brittle Oatmeal Chocolate-Chunk Cookies

After living many years in the Nordics we got obsessed with all the recipes made with oats. The first among all is the porridge, called havregrød in Denmark, that comes in many variations from the sweet to the savoury ones. Today’s recipe uses the oat instead of flour to prepare the traditional chocolate chips cookies making them lighter and a little bit healthier.
