    Boo L's Note:

    A lovely warming sauce; a good sinus-clearer; or just some proper traditional Italian cooking! This sauce announces itself at full volume, because of the chillies, but is also full of flavour. It is pantry food - a sauce that can be thrown together from ingredients you can keep in the cupboard for months at a time. This is the simplest recipe for it I have found, but is still delicious. When condensed down there may not seem to be much sauce, but you want to treat this like pesto - a small quantity swirled through lots of pasta, rather than drowning in sauce. If you try to split this only between two you may find it too rich.

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preparation:.
    2. 2
      While retaining the oil, chop the anchovies finely, so that when included they will dissolve into the sauce.
    3. 3
      Blanch the olives by covering with cold water, bringing to the boil and draining. Then crush them with a rolling pin.
    4. 4
      Rinse the capers in water to remove the brine (or salt).
    5. 5
      The sauce:.
    6. 6
      Gently melt the onions, garlic and chillies in a generous amount of olive oil until the onions are translucent and begin to turn golden.
    7. 7
      Add the anchovy fillets, and the oil they were kept in; the olives; and the capers. Continue to cook over a medium heat for 2-3 minutes.
    8. 8
      Add the tomatoes and a small cup of water. The sauce will need cooking until the anchovies have almost dissolved away, so you may need to add more water later.
    9. 9
      Bring the sauce to the boil, and then reduce the heat and simmer for about 10 minutes.
    10. 10
      Season with salt and pepper.
    11. 11
      Serving:.
    12. 12
      This sauce is best served in a small quantity, mixed thoroughly into a pasta like fusilli that the sauce can "enter" rather than over the top like bolognese.
