Today I am sharing my mother's Puttanesca sauce recipe. Nearly every Christmas Eve that I can remember, she makes this sauce to serve over pasta. Can you imagine what it would be like to not be able to feed your family this Christmas? I can't. This is why I am excited to tell you that I am one of over 60 food bloggers participating in a campaign to increase awareness of childhood hunger this holiday season.
Share Our Holiday Table is a virtual, seven day progressive dinner to help raise funds for children in need. Did you know that nearly 17 million children, or one in four, live in homes without sufficient food. As a mother of four, I want to make sure that my children are well-fed daily with healthy, nourishing foods and I know that I am not alone. All parents want this for their children.
Children need proper nutrition for their immune systems to function well, for proper brain development and growth, to be able to pay attention and learn in school, and to be able to run, skip, hop, and jump all day long!
Now we all have a chance to help nourish a child in need. Donate today. Even five dollars if that's all you can do. Every little bit helps.

Wow, what a wonderful site! I love the variations/options. I recently made a lentil puttanesca which was my first experience w puttanesca. I adore it to bits! I love love salmon and am bookmarking this recipe w much anticipation.
What a wonderful recipe, Ali! You know how much I love salmon. :-) It's so great to participate in this event with you and the other great bloggers. I hope that we make a huge difference!

This looks great Ali. And easy! I'm going to make it tomorrow! Thanks for sharing!
Ali - yay! A seafood entree. I skirt around having to cook fish simply because I am so limited in seafood culinary talent. So thank you for this inspiration. Such a treat to be participating in this event with you!

Always looking for new ways to eat salmon.
This looks delicious! My daughter LOVES salmon and LOVES pasta - so this is sure to be a hit! All the ingredients are mouth-watering! I usually serve salmon with rice, but this will be a nice change for us! Thanks for a great recipe!
This looks great, I'll definitely give this a shot!
