This simple spaghetti recipe is inspired by the Italian Riviera, home to Nudo's own olive grove, Bestagno. The salty anchovies and capers in the dish are a sensory reminder of the beautiful coastline and sea air. A great mid-week meal, it's quick and easy to make.


  • 160 ml of Nudo Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 6 rinsed and chopped anchovy fillets
  • Salted capers - 2 teaspoons or as you like
  • 2 good sized cloves of garlic roughly chopped
  • Chopped flat leafed parsley
  • 5 small tomatoes or 4 whole canned tomatoes
  • Thick spaghetti for four people
  • Sea Salt and freshly ground black pepper


Step 1
Cook the pasta according to the instructions on the package. Make sure you do as the Italian's do and use plenty of well salted water.
Step 2
Heat the olive oil in a medium shallow pan, then add the anchovies, capers, garlic and about half of the parsley. Cook for 4 minutes being careful not to burn the garlic.
Step 3
Add the tomatoes and cook until you have a nice sauce. Add the rest of the parsley to the sauce and check the seasoning.
Step 4
Drain the pasta and mix it into the sauce adding a drizzle of olive oil and serve.
