The Italian classic Puttanesca sauce,  is generally served with pasta and the main ingredients are tomatoes, garlic, anchovies, black olives, oregano, olive oil, and garlic has been around for centuries.  The pasta, in this case, is a sheet of tomato water thickened with agar and rolled with  tomato tapenade inside, like a canneloni.  It is accompanied with garlic bread, anchovy mayonnaise, crispy capers and reduced Balsamic vinegar.

  • Combine the tomato water, glucose, agar, and salt in a small saucepan.

  • Let cool completely and cut out with a square cutter.
