salsa puttanesca literally means "harlot's sauce" and was thought to be

Romesco is a classic Spanish sauce that is served with a wide variety of
dishes, including the famous tortilla Española from the Tarragona
region, this classic Catalan sauce combines almonds with two of the most
popular horticultural imports from the New World—chiles and tomatoes.
The sauce gets its name from the romesco chile, but these are not
readily available outside Spain. A combination of ancho and New Mexican
chiles approximates the flavor.
