Some people are a little squeamish about using anchovies, or think that they taste really fishy. I promise, they don’t in this recipe! They add an amazing depth of flavour to the sauce, and a really savoury saltiness.
There’s no need to use a whole can of anchovies for this sauce, so any you don’t use you can freeze! Or make a double batch of the sauce and freeze it!

Cook the spaghetti according to the instructions on the packet.
Meanwhile, finely slice the garlic, chilli and olives. You can remove the seeds of the chilli if you prefer it less spicy. Roughly chop the capers and anchovies.
Spray a saucepan with Frylight and cook the garlic and chilli on a moderate heat until just starting to brown.
Add the anchovies and capers to the saucepan and cook for a further minute. Add the canned tomatoes and mix to fully combine.
Drain the pasta and add to the sauce. Serve immediately while piping hot!
