Puttanesca without pasta? Indeed. We use butter beans here instead of the usual pasta to make this a gluten-free recipe. If you don’t have butter beans, cannellini beans would be just as good.

It’s important to soften the onion and garlic without allowing it to colour. And the longer you can leave the puttanesca to reduce, the more flavour it will develop. Half an hour should be the minimum, but if you turn the heat to low and reduce for an hour you’ll get a wonderful consistency and flavour. Add 1 tsp sugar to balance the acidity.
Puttanesca is a classic Italian pasta sauce but we’ve used beans here for a gluten-free alternative.
