    1 onion, 3 cloves of garlic

    4 or 5 slices pancetta, dried chilli

    2 tblspns. black olives, 5 anchovies, 1 tblspn. capers

    1/2 cup red wine, 400g. peeled tomatoes


    Heat olive oil, add finely chopped onion & garlic, pancetta & chilli.

    Saute a few minutes till translucent. Toss in olives, finely chopped anchovies & capers.

    Cook a few more minutes & then pour in wine. Bubble away until evaporated.

    Add tomatoes & 1/2 cup water. Check for seasoning, adjust if needed (although it’s probably plenty salty enough…)

    Simmer for 30 or 40 mins. Read a book, drink wine :))

    Spoon on top of fresh spaghetti (or whatever pasta you have on hand) & garnish with lashings of parmesan & chopped parsley.
