DIRECTIONS

  • Over medium-low heat, saute the onions, garlic, and chilli in a couple of Tbsp of olive oil until soft, about 10-15 min, stirring occasionally.
  • Add the parsley and season well.
  • Pour in the canned tomatoes, stirring the mixture well, then stir in the olives, capers, anchovies, a small amount of sugar (to reduce acidity), some more seasoning to taste, and a drizzle of olive oil(optional, I didn't add any extra oil).
  • Let simmer over low heat, uncovered, stirring occasionally, for about 45 min to a an hour, until thick and reduced and the color has darkened to a reddish-brown.
  • Test for flavors and adjust seasoning, adding more salt & pepper and/or another pinch of sugar as needed.
  • Cook the pasta according to the instructions on the package, drain(reserving some of the liquid) and then return to the pan.
  • Ladle in a few helpings of the sauce at a time, stopping to stir the mixture, until all of the pasta has been generously coated, serving the rest on the side.
  • This sauce is very thick, which we loved, but adding a bit of the pasta cooking liquid will thin it if you prefer a bit looser sauce.
  • Serve immediately.
