Spaghetti with tomatoes, olives & capers

Last few days I spend watching some series of Gordon Ramsay's 'F-Word' and really got inspiration to make some dishes that would be fast, tasty and healthy. This particular dish could be made literally in 10 minutes plus I managed to make a cup of coffee too. So if you like olives, anchovies and capers, this dish is for you! The original recipe can be found in Gordon Ramsay book 'Fast Food: recipes from the F-word kitchen'.

What we need:

300 gr of spaghetti
salt and pepper
2 tbsp of olive oil
2 cloves of garlic
1 red onion
1 red chilli
6-8 anchovies in oil
200 gr of pitted olives
3 tbsp of capers
250 gr of cherry tomatoes
a handful of basil leaves
some parsley
½ lemon juice

What we have to do:

1. Add the pasta to a pot of boiling salted water and cook for 9 minutes.
2. Heat the olive oil in a pan and fry chopped garlic, onion, chilli and anchovies for 1-2 minutes. Add the olives, capers and tomatoes, and stir over a high heat for a few minutes until the onions are soft.
3. Drain the pasta and toss with the sauce and shredded basil. Adjust the seasoning.
4. Divide among warm bowls and drizzle over a little more olive oil if you wish. Enjoy!
