From Cooking with Manuela

Spicy and flavorful, these classic Italian Spaghetti alla Puttanesca are a sure way to make any dinner special

Made with Tomato puree

Mutti® Tomato Puree (Passata) is sun-ripened 100% Italian tomatoes transformed into sweet velvety puree with just a touch of Mediterranean sea salt. After eliminating the skin and seeds, the tomatoes are pureed to achieve a smooth, luxurious texture while maintaining their bright red color and naturally sweet flavor. Fantastic in marinara sauce, tomato soup, or even a Bloody Mary.
