Now that looks darn good and has really made me hungry. However, it needs a better name than "puttanesca." How about "Chicken Yummy with angel hair pasta"?

Kim, it looks delicious.  I've tried chicken puttanesca before, but never over angel hair pasta.
And for those of you on a low carb diet, that chicken is also really good over kamut pasta or even quinoa.

Kim - That looks like a really wonderful recipe.  I'm a fairly serious cook, and I'm definitely going to try it out.
