Inspired by the Italian Christmas Eve tradition—feast of the seven fishes—we’ve created a celebratory shrimp pasta dish. Puttanesca, a tomato sauce from southern Italy, gets incredible flavor from capers and olives and it dresses long strands of bucatini—a pleasingly thick spaghetti­like pasta with a hole in the middle! Cook, relax and enjoy!
