- Cook the spaghetti first. Two minutes before it is ready, prepare the sauce.
- Heat the pan first and add the tomatoes and garlic stirring for about one minute, then add the olives, capers and herbs and spices.
- Drain the spaghetti and toss in the pan and serve with crusty bread.
- Season with salt and plenty of black pepper then add a splash of olive oil to the sauce at the end for umami flavours.
Add anchovies and a tin of tuna (in brine) for a fishy flavour or if you're vegan, dried seaweed.
You can substitute the fresh tomatoes for tinned.
