Anna: This is very Bill. Very Australian. A deconstructed Puttanesca sauce.
Peter: I prefer this to our regular Puttanesca.
Peter: It tasted much fresher. Would it be the tomatoes?
Anna: Probably. He uses cherry tomatoes instead of tinned. And green olives instead of black. And, controversially he adds parmesan shavings at the end. I don’t think the Italians would approve.
Peter: I don’t mind. I liked it. Nevermind the Italians.
Anna: It’s a very Bill thing to do fresh, chunky pasta sauces like this with penne. I think it makes it a little difficult to eat. You end up chasing bits of olives around the bowl. I enjoyed this but, unlike you, not as much as the original.
