puttanesca literally translates to “of, relating to, or characteristic of a prostitute. The name is often said to have originated with old-timey courtesans, who ostensibly favored it because it was quick enough to make in between appointments. The name has more to do with the practical use of puttanesca in Italian than its literal definition: Italians use puttana (and related words) almost the way we use shit, as an all-purpose profanity, so pasta alla puttanesca might have originated with someone saying, essentially, “I just threw a bunch of shit from the cupboard into a pan.”
