Bocatelli with Tomato Sauce Anchovy, Red Pepper and Capers
So simple and so packed with taste I simply love this recipe. It’s easy keeping in mind that you can’t burn the garlic or you have to start again!

Instructions
  1. In a frying pan add the oil heat and add the oil, garlic, chopped anchovies, red pepper flakes and most of the chopped parsley and saute for a couple of minutes. Be careful not to burn the garlic.
  2. Add the crushed tomatoes and simmer very gently until the oil separates from the tomatoes. This should take 15 to 20 minutes. Then the sauce is done.
  3. When the pasta is cooked save a little of the water, drain and add to the sauce. Add the capers. Stir well to incorporate all the sauce. If its a bit thick you can loosen it with a little of the pasta cooking water.
  4. Taste for salt and pepper. Stir in the butter, add the remaining parsley and serve on a warm serving plate.
Recipe Notes

This recipe really takes so little time. Put on the pasta water when you begin to make the sauce and it shouldn’t take more than 25 minutes to get dinner onto a plate. The sauce can be made ahead.
