Also Barilla says the origin of the name is unclear: http://www.academiabarilla.com/italian-recipes/lazio/spaghetti-with-puttanesca-sauce.aspx

Thanks, Francesca. That link leads to more suggested origins of the name eg that the dish was first made at brothels in Naples, or that the dish was eaten by the women in them. I must try the recipe - sounds tasty, and not too expensive. Thanks for stopping by and for your comment.
