  1. I love puttanesca, and I will definitely try this. I have never used whole peppercorns before. Do you leave them in after cooking or do you fish them out like the bay leafs?

    1. Kristi! Yes, I’m w/you on puttanesca! No I leave the peppercorns in it whole. They soften ‘somewhat’ and offer a ‘bite and pop’ for those who might get in a spoonful. You can certainly use ground pepper if you’re not comfortable w/the whole! See you again soon in the kitchen, luv! xoxx ally
