Pasta Puttanesca

Dinners don’t get much simpler than this... Nor do such simple suppers tend to be as deliciously tasty! Speedy, delicious, and made with minimal store cupboard ingredients – you can add some beans or chickpeas if you want a little more protein in addition to the nuts, but sometimes all you need is a big bowl of carbs, to be honest…
