A classic heart Italian favourite;

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 6 chopped anchovy fillets
  • 1 tablespoon tomato puree
  •  teaspoon dried chilli flakes
  • 600g tinned chopped tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon tomato ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon fresh basil leaves, chopped
  • 75 olives, pitted and chopped
  • 1 tablespoon capers
  • 350g pappardelle or other ribbon pasta

Cook the pasta while you prepare the sauce.

Fry the anchovies in the oil on a gentle heat for a couple of minutes, then stir in the tomato puree and chilli flakes.

Turn the heat up a notch and cook for another couple of minutes before adding the tinned tomatoes, ketchup, basil, olives and capers.

Simmer vigorously for about five minutes, until the sauce thickens.

Season to taste and stir through the pasta, then serve with some garlic bread and a green salad.
