    RoxiGirl's Note:

    This recipe was given to me by some dear friends. I'm not sure where they got it from but the story behind the dish as described to me: In Italy, women of the night would prepare this dish for their customers late in the evening. It could be made quickly from things that would be on hand in a normal Italian kitchen. The women could keep their operation going easily.

    1. 1
      Place olive oil in frying pan and add the minced garlic. When garlic is browned a bit, add olives, capers, tomato and anchovy filets. Stir well and cook for about 6 minutes.
    2. 2
      Meanwhile cook the pasta until al dente and drain.
    3. 3
      Place the pasta in a bowl, add half the tomato/anchovy sauce and toss well. Add the remaining sauce on top and sprinkle the parsley, salt and pepper, red pepper flakes. Serve hot.
    4. 4
      It can also be eaten later, cold. You may want to adjust the salt, pepper, red pepper flakes to your own taste. This is great with salad and garlic bread! Enjoy!
