Originating in Naples, puttanesca owns a spot in the pasta sauce hall of perfection. A few small things go into creating a big success, literally—by adding chopped Kalamata olives, flecks of parsley and briny little capers to the tomato sauce, you’ll create a lively, full palate to coat your fresh penne in no time. Simplicity rules the side for this meal, in a leafy salad with cucumbers and a spritz of lemon.

Make the sauce
In a medium pan, heat a generous drizzle of olive oil on medium. Sauté the parsley stems, garlic and spices, 1 to 2 min., until fragrant. Add the capers and olives, tomato sauce and ⅓ cup water (double for 4 portions). Cook, stirring frequently, 4 to 6 min., until thickened and reduced; season with S&P.

Boil the pasta
Meanwhile, add the pasta to the pot of boiling water; stir gently to separate. Boil, 3 to 6 min., until al dente. Reserving 1 cup cooking water (double for 4 portions), drain and toss with a drizzle of oil to prevent sticking.

Make the salad
Meanwhile, halve the cucumbers lengthwise; thinly slice on an angle. In a large bowl, combine 1 tbsp lemon juice, 3 tbsp olive oil (double both for 4 portions) and S&P. Add the baby greens, cucumbers, ⅔ of the parsley leaves and ½ the cheese; toss well.

Combine the pasta
To the pan of sauce, add the pasta and ½ the reserved cooking water. Cook, stirring frequently, 30 sec. to 1 min., until combined. If the sauce seems dry, gradually add the remaining cooking water until you achieve your desired consistency.
