"Capers and black olives give this tomato sauce a briny, unique flavor. Spaghetti noodles are preferable because they will trap the sauce ingredients."

  1. Combine tomatoes, olive oil, onion, basil, anchovy paste, garlic, oregano, baking soda, and salt in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a simmer; reduce heat, and simmer, stirring occasionally, until flavors blend, 1 to 2 hours. Add olives, capers, and parsley during the last 20 to 30 minutes of cooking.
  2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook spaghetti in the boiling water, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, about 12 minutes. Drain.
  3. Divide spaghetti among serving bowls; ladle sauce over noodles and sprinkle red pepper flakes on top.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Use any combination of diced and/or pureed tomatoes.
