Watch how to make this recipe.
  • Cook the pasta until al dente according to the package directions.

  • Mash (in this order) the garlic, anchovies and olives using a mortar and pestle, or just chop them finely together. Set aside.

  • Using a fork, crumble the Parmesan.

  • Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the red onions and cook until slightly caramelized. Add the tomatoes and cook for a couple of minutes. Pour in the broth or wine and cook for another 2 minutes, then pour in the garlic/anchovy/olive mixture. Stir and continue cooking until the sauce is nice and reduced and wonderful, several minutes.
