Spaghetti puttanesca

It's quick and it's tasty.  Sautee finely chopped onion and red pepper in a goodly puddle of olive oil. Put a big pan of salted water on to boil.  When it boils chuck in spaghetti, following packet instructions, usually about 8 minutes. To the sauteeing vegetables add chopped garlic, chili, black olives and capers, and some salt. (You can add anchovies, but victim isn't keen, so I left them out). Chuck in a tin of chopped tomatoes and simmer for a bit.  Add to cooked spaghetti, grind of black pepper, scoff.  Yum - for something so quick - adjust flavourings to suit yourself, I like it quite hot so added quite a lot of chili.
