Historians have suggested the Bay of Naples as the birthplace of this pasta sauce named after the local women of easy virtue. All the ingredients are just as easy to put your hands on, making this a quick and satisfying meal! Chopped red-ripened plum tomatoes are cooked in a little extra virgin olive oil and simmered until the raw flavor departs, then tossed with briny minced green onions and capers. The sauce is then seasoned with salt, fresh herbs, onion, and garlic. Best served over spaghetti with a hearty Chianti. Careful, you might fall in love!
