Porcini puttanesca sauce

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1⅓ cup Hot water
½ ounce (3/4 cup) dried porcini mushrooms
1 can (28-oz) diced peeled tomatoes in juice
1¼ cup Finely chopped onions
1½ tablespoon Minced garlic
12 \N Nocois olives, pitted, chopped
2 tablespoons Tomato paste
1½ tablespoon Drained capers
1½ tablespoon Chopped anchovy filets
1 teaspoon Dried oregano
1 teaspoon Dried basil
⅛ teaspoon Dried crushed red pepper

Had this at a friend's - note the original recipe called for ⅛ tsp crushed red pepper flakes - she adjusted that with jalapenos (yum) it was delicious tossed with penne pasta (This recipe uses Porcini mushrooms to smooth out the intense flavors) Combine water & mushrooms in a small bowl. Let stand until porcini are soft, about 25 minutes. Strain porcini, reserving liquid, discard sandy residue. Coarsely chop porcini. Drain tomatoes, reserving juice. Bring juice to boil in large saucepan. Add onion and garlic. Reduce heat and simmer sauce until onion is tender, about 15 min. Add procini, reserved procini liquid, tomatoes, olives, and next 6 ingredients. Patrially cover pot and simmer until sauce is thickened slightly, about 30 min. Season with salt & pepper.

Add sauce to cooked pasta. Toss to blend.
