Putanesca has all of my favorite antipasti ingredients combined into one delicious sauce: olives, roasted peppers, capers and anchovies. Most recipes call for eating this sauce over pasta, but I was inspired by a recipe from Giada De Laurentiis where she paired it with fish - and I was sold. The salty and spicy sauce tastes perfect paired with any simply seared white fish and this bright arugala and fennel salad.
Roast chicken is a classic, but this recipe, has all of those delicious “extras” that will transform this weeknight roast chicken into a feast. Years ago, I watched a video on Martha Stewart, ("Eden's Roast Chicken") featuring this recipe and I knew I would love it when I saw the roasted lemons, capers and olives. If your go-to section of whole foods is the olive and pickle bar, you will love one-tray roasted chicken with its lemony-salty flair.
