  1. In a saute pan over medium heat, add olive oil, shallots, garlic, oregano, basil and anchovy fillets. Sweat about 30 seconds, until anchovies begin to break down. Add capers and olives and saute 1 minute. Deglaze with white wine, add clam juice, let reduce by 1/3. Add plum tomatoes and thoroughly incorporate. Add marinara sauce. Season, to taste.
  2. In separate pot, bring 1 1/2 gallons of water to boil. Season water generously with salt. When water is at a rapid boil, add linguini, stir so there is no clumping. Cook until al dente, about 4 to 5 minutes.
  3. Add cooked pasta to puttanesca sauce and toss. Garnish with freshly chopped parsley.
