Ingredients:  
½ pound spaghetti (I used whole wheat spaghetti)
2 shallots, thinly sliced
1 pint cherry tomatoes, cut in half if large
3 garlic cloves, grated or very finely minced
½ cup oil-cured olives
3 oil-packed anchovy filets or 1 1/2 tsps anchovy paste
1 1/2 tsps tomato paste
grated zest of 1 organic lemon and it's juice
½ teaspoon chili flakes
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon kosher salt
¼ teaspoon ground pepper
3 cups water

to serve:
grated parmesan cheese, to taste
fresh torn basil leaves

Directions:
Directions:
1. Combine all the ingredients, except the parmesan and basil, in your pot. (You need something wide and shallow with a lid that will hold the spaghetti lying flat.)

2. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium-high heat. Once it reaches a boil, stir to make sure the noodles aren’t sticking and cover half with the lid. Cook, half-covered for about 12 minutes, stirring every couple of minutes, until the noodles are tender and the liquid has reduced to a nice sauce.

3. Divide between four bowls. Top with grated parmesan cheese and fresh basil leaves.

I started the two pastes and shallots in the olive oil first. Sauted them, then added the tomatoes until they burst. Then added everything else.
