  • Heat oil in large skillet set over medium-high heat; cook garlic, anchovies and hot pepper flakes, stirring constantly to break up anchovies, for 30 to 60 seconds or until softened and fragrant. Stir in olives. Add tomatoes; cook for 7 to 10 minutes.
  • Cook spaghetti according to package directions. Drain, reserving 1/4 cup (60 mL) cooking liquid. Add spaghetti to skillet; toss to coat with reserved cooking liquid.


Add some protein by stirring in two cans of olive-oil packed tuna or a can of cannellini beans.   
Increase or omit the hot pepper flakes based on preference.
