- 1 lb. spaghetti
- 1 lb plum tomatoes, skin removed and diced
- 3 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
- 1/4 cup kalamata olives
- 1/4 cup capers, rinsed
- 2 oz. anchovies
- handful of parsley, chopped
- 1/2 cup white wine (I use chardonnay)
- 1 tsp. hot pepper flakes, optional
- 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
Start off with a big pan, and add the olive oil over medium to high heat. Let the garlic fry for a minute or two, stirring it occasionally, try not to let it burn.
Next add in the anchovies, and lower the heat to medium. You only want to fry them for about 30 seconds while stirring, then you can add in the capers and olives. You will want to stir the ingredients so that they all cook evenly.
After about 2 minutes, you will need to add the white wine. The alcohol in the wine will eventually evaporate, but the flavor of the wine will infuse itself into the ingredients while also bringing out more of the ingredients flavors. If you do not want to use wine, you can skip this step.
