Puttanesca Blanca Linguine

Puttanesca Blanca Linguine

"A delicious twist on a quick and easy Italian classic that substitutes fish sauce for finicky anchovy fillets. Serve with a generous green salad. I like something with strawberries or Asian pears and a glass of white wine. Make it a full meal by topping with a dry-spiced chicken breast (I like a hint of fish oil and garlic spice blends to make a nice rub.)"

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook the linguine at a boil until tender yet firm to the bite, about 11 minutes; drain.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Stir fish sauce, chile paste, and garlic in the hot oil; cook and stir until the garlic softens, about 5 minutes. Add bell pepper, olives, capers, and oregano; continue cooking and stirring until the garlic browns, about 5 minutes more. Pour drained linguine into the sauce; toss to coat. Top with black pepper.

  • Cook's Note:
  • The chile paste I use by Sisters Secret Gourmet Foods(R) is a local product in Vancouver, BC and was featured on Season 4 of the CBC TV Series, Dragon's Den. Hopefully it will soon be available everywhere.

Pretty good. I prefer my puttanesca with tomatoes, but I guess that's what makes this blanca? The fish sauce made for good flavor, but I'm not a fan of the chile paste. Too spicy for me and didn't allow the flavors of the olives and capers to pop as much as I like. Maybe it's the brand I used, though; I don't think we have the brand in our area that the recipe submitter mentioned. At any rate, it was fun to try this dish--it's a take on puttanesca I haven't tried before. I don't think I'll make it again since I adore traditional puttanesca but it's a very nice recipe--thanks for sharing!
