Another simple pasta dish, where the fresh ingredients make up all the flavour.

Makes 4 servings
  • 500g red and yellow cherry tomatoes, quartered 
  • 150 g black olives, stoned 
  • 6 anchovy fillets in oil, drained and finely sliced 
  • 1 clove garlic, finely sliced 
  • bunch of fresh parsley, chopped
  • extra virgin olive oil 
  • 1 sprig fresh marjoram, oregano or thyme, leaves picked
  • salt and pepper
Put the tomatoes into a large mixing bowl with the olives, anchovies and garlic. Add a few lugs of the best olive oil you can find, season to taste and gently stir together. 

Cook the pasta in plenty of boiling salted water until tender, then drain and add to the mixing bowl, along with the parsley. Stir it all together and let it sit for a minute or two, so the pasta starts to suck up all the lovely flavoured juices in the bowl. Stir again, check the seasoning and serve sprinkled with the marjoram, oregano or thyme leaves.
