Here is the recipe with the leeks, personally since it doesnt contain capers or anchovies, I dont see how it fits in. It does have olives. Hmmmm:

Look at my post above with the devil's face. It gives you an idea of the basis of where the word "puttanesca" originated from.

A lot of classic Italian dishes were named after some sort of significance, either by whomever invented the dish, or from why they made up the dish. Carbonara is a perfect example which I explained about in the carbonara thread. Amatriciana is another example of what is my personal favorite pasta sauce.

The basic premise behind the puttanesca sauce was that it was made by prostitutes after a hard night of work, both literally and figuratively speaking.

Regarding the Sicilian Lifeguard sauce, I've never trained in Italy like Mario has, so I'm not going to say that my versions are correct. I did however work in an Italian restaurant for a year and a half with a Chef who was born and raised in Puglia (the heel of the boot) and I learned what I know of as the basics and base of Italian cuisine from him.

A Google search for Lifeguard sauce recipe gets over7,500 hits . How many different recipes do you need? Are you trying to tell me they are all the same recipe? I kind of doubt that.

Yes that is exactly what I am telling you. Why dont you click on one or two of those hits and see what actually comes up? I went through the first 30 hits for "Siclian lifeguard" and came up with only two different ones, the original Mario one and a variation w/ leeks.

Funny, I opened the first three, all accredited to Mario Batali, and all three had subtle differences. Try putting each one in a data base, sort the ingredients alphabetically, and compare.
