Sweet Puttanesca

This Sweet Puttanesca simply cannot be beat. Frying garlic and onions in the Nutiva Organic Red Palm Oil creates a richly flavored sauce with black olives, tomatoes, and capers. This sauce is perfect to serve over your favorite pasta.


  • 2 tbsp Nutiva Organic Red Palm Oil
  • 1 cup Onion (coarsely chopped)
  • 9 cloves Garlic (sliced)
  • 3 1/2 cups Plum Tomatoes (diced)
  • 1/4 cups Kalamata Olives (pitted)
  • 2 tbsp Capers (rinsed if packed in salt)
  • 1/3 cup Parsley (coarsely chopped)
  • 1/4 tsp Sea Salt (or to taste)
  • 1 pinch Ground Black Pepper (or to taste)


  1. Heat the oil in a 6-quart stockpot over medium heat. Add the onions, garlic, and sauté for 3-5 minutes until onions begin to soften.
  2. Stir in the tomatoes, olives and capers. Simmer for 5-10 minutes to lightly cook the tomatoes.
  3. Add parsley, salt and pepper. Simmer for 3 minutes to blend flavors, or until parsley turns bright green.
  4. Taste and adjust the seasonings, if desired.
  5. Serve over up to half a pound of your favorite pasta.
