  1. 1

    Heat a dutch oven over medium-low heat and add the oil. Once hot, add the garlic and anchovies and cook for 1 to 2 minutes, until fragrant.

  2. 2

    Add the tomatoes, chili flakes, capers and olives and crush the tomatoes with the back of a wooden spoon.

  3. 3

    Add the water and the spaghetti and bring to a boil, while mixing the pasta in the water with tongs to avoid any sticking. Keep stirring often with the tongs to avoid any sticking, until cooked al dente, about 10 minutes, or according to package directions.

  4. 4

    Once the pasta is cooked, drain any excess liquid if any remains with a spoon or cup, most of it should be absorbed.

  5. 5

    Divide onto plates and top with parmesan cheese and parsley. Season with salt and pepper. Enjoy!
