"This is my second order for your oregano and I would like to say that it is the "BEST" I have ever used. It is better, much better, than my own home grown oregano. I want to thank you people for a superior product that I absolutely love and so do the friends I share it with...God Bless"   Charles W.,  Plainville, Connecticut
Angela's Italian and Sicilian Recipes
Penne with Salmon in Puttanesca Sauce
Penne with Salmon in Puttanesca Sauce
(Penne con Salmone Puttanesca)

12 ounces penne rigate or other ridged tubular pasta
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
16 ounces skinless center-cut salmon fillets
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
2 cups grape tomatoes
1/4 cup kalamata olives, pitted and coarsely chopped
1 tablespoons drained capers, rinsed and coarsely chopped
1/4 cup finely shredded basil leaves
In a large pot of salted boiling water, cook the pasta until it’s barely 'al dente'.

Drain, reserving 1 and 1/4 cups of the cooking water.

Meanwhile, in a very large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of the olive oil.

Season the salmon with salt and pepper, add it to the skillet and cook over high heat until browned on both sides but not cooked through, about 6 minutes.
Transfer the salmon to a plate and pour off the olive oil in the skillet.

Add the remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil to the skillet along with the garlic and crushed red pepper.
Cook over moderate heat until the garlic is lightly browned in spots, about 30 seconds.

Add the tomatoes and cook until just softened, 2 to 3 minutes.

Add 1 cup of the reserved pasta cooking water and bring to a boil, gently crushing the tomatoes.

Add the pasta, olives and capers and cook over moderate heat, stirring, until the liquid is slightly absorbed, about 2 minutes.

Add the salmon to the skillet and break it up into chunks.

Cook, tossing, until the salmon is nearly cooked through and the pasta is 'al dente', about 2 minutes; add more of the pasta cooking water if the sauce is dry.

Stir in the basil, transfer the pasta to bowls and serve. Serves 4.
