Growing up, my mom would make puttanesca all the time as a quick and easy meal. All you need is tomatoes, capers, olives, and fresh parsley. That’s it! While puttanesca sauce is usually served with pasta like in my one-pot puttanesca recipe, this hearty bean version is so good as an appetizer or a main.
Serve it with crusty garlic bread, my preferred version, or spooned over polenta. See below for more details and tips, or scroll down to the full recipe card below.
Cook the onion and garlic in olive oil until softened.
Stir in the tomato paste, then the roasted tomatoes, beans, olives, and capers. Add the broth and simmer until warm and thickened.
Stir in the parsley, red wine vinegar or lemon juice, parmesan cheese, and taste to serve. Enjoy with crispy garlic bread or on its own.
