Fantastic. Capers have always been linked with medicine, health and spectacularness. They are said to be especially brilliant for your liver and kidney.

Puttanesca hey! The word is literally derived from the Italian word for whore...puttana. A bit rude really but at Mr Organic we're not shy of a bit of naughtyness. Puttana also means worthless and apparently the recipe was just chucked together using the bits and bobs they had lying around. Imagine that...lucky really that in the Naples region of Italy where Puttanesca comes from, they had some tomatoes, capers, and olives lying around. A pretty good combination!

Our recipe is pretty traditional and we don't add any anchovy which can sometimes be used.  We do add a pinch of chilli which we think enhances the complimentary flavours of the other ingredients.

Tomato (77%), Olives (10%), Onions, Extra virgin olive oil, Capers (1%), Sea salt, Sugar, Parsley, Oregano, Marjoram, Chilli

Suitable for Vegetarians & Vegans
