This was the first recipe I made from a TV program, Jamie Oliver’s The Naked Chef, back when you had to watch and write recipes down quickly because cooking shows and recipes didn’t exist online. So I wrote it down and made it many times, memorized it, lost the paper, kept making it as my memory faded. I’ve ended up with this thing you see here, hands-down my favorite quick pasta sauce!

  • What to buy

    Bialetti Pasta Pot with Strainer Lid, $34.99 on Amazon

    No matter what kind of pasta you make, a pot with a built-in strainer makes draining it easy. It's handy for boiling potatoes and other veggies too.

Instructions

  1. 1Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Start cooking the spaghetti according to the package directions.
  2. 2While the pasta is cooking, warm the oil from the anchovies in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the whole anchovies, garlic, and capers. Cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  3. 3Add the jalapeño and cook for 1 minute.
  4. 4Add the tomatoes and olives and cook, stirring, until the tomatoes have softened slightly, about 3 minutes.
    When the spaghetti is al dente, drain and add it to the sauce. Use tongs to toss, add some black pepper and 1 or 2 tablespoons of olive oil, and toss again. Serve in warmed pasta bowls.
