recipe Simple Tomato Sauce (made using the choices of 3 to 4 tablespoons
extra-virgin olive oil and 3 cloves garlic, minced)
4 anchovies, minced (optional; see note)
16 to 24 piquant olives, such as kalamatas, pitted and chopped coarse
2 tablespoons capers, drained
the Simple Tomato Sauce recipe, stirring anchovies into the sizzling
garlic until they soften and adding the olives and capers along with
enough for 1 pound pasta; 4 to 6 servings.
Note: Even if you are not an anchovy fan, there is a good chance you
will not taste them. As Anderson notes, they are there to add depth
to the overall flavor of the sauce.
