Nigella Lawson Posts Slut's Spaghetti Recipe For Girls Star
This cheeky British cookbook author made some slutty spaghetti.
The Taste/ ABC
Ultimate badass home cook and author extraordinaire Nigella Lawson might have taught us How To Be a Domestic Goddess long ago, but her Twitter account is making waves recently after Lawson posted a recipe that "lovingly" shows how to make spaghetti like a slut. However, the slutty spaghetti is only half the story here because it's who Lawson tagged in the tweet that makes the story perfect.
Lawson's recipe for pasta alla puttanesca posted on her website years ago but the cookbook author recently tweeted out the recipe again, this time tagging Girls creator and star Lena Dunham:
While Dunham did retweet Lawson's recipe, the whole thing may have been spurred by this tweet that Dunham posted earlier in the day:
Hey word police : slutty is one of my favorites I will never stop applying it to MYSELF until I'm slutting it up in my dirty dirty grave :/— Lena Dunham (@lenadunham) August 1, 2014
According to Lawson's recipe, pasta alla puttanesca or "whore's pasta" is "the sort of dish cooked by slatterns who don't go to market to get their ingredients fresh, but are happy to use stuff out of jars and tins." You can try out Nigella's take on the classic tangy, spicy pasta dish that you can make on the cheap by following her recipe for Slut's Spaghetti off of her website.
