This is my super-fast version of the pasta dish that originated in Naples, Italy. In addition to the classic ingredients of tomatoes, olives, garlic and anchovies, I nestle cut-up rotisserie chicken in the sauce as it simmers for a hearty weeknight meal that's ready in a flash.



  1. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion, garlic and anchovy paste and cook until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add the tomato paste, crushed tomatoes, and crushed red pepper, if using. Cook until the sauce thickens, about 10 minutes.
  2. Stir in the olives, capers and Italian seasoning. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Nestle the chicken pieces in the sauce. Simmer until the chicken is warmed through, about 10 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, cook the spaghetti according to the package directions. Serve the chicken and sauce over the spaghetti and garnish with the oregano.
