  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add oil, garlic, anchovies, and crushed pepper.
  • Saute mixture until anchovies melt into oil and completely dissolve and garlic is tender, about 3 minutes: your kitchen never smelled so good!
  • Add olives, capers, tomatoes, black pepper, and parsley.
  • Bring sauce to a bubble, reduce heat, and simmer 8 to 10 minutes.
  • Toss sauce with cooked pasta.
  • Pass bread and cheese at the table and serve with a simple salad of mixed bitter greens dressed with oil and vinegar, salt, and pepper.
  • Cook's Note: Get your olives from the bulk bins in the market, rather than buying a jar.
  • The unit price is always much less per pound and you can get just what you need for each recipe.
