Hi and welcome to Place the place where you get to learn how to make delicious Italian recipes .
All made Italian recipes with me .
Today we're making pasta and has three main ingredients , olives , capers and a , a delicious pasta recipe from the area of Naples .
Let's make it together and I'll share the story of this pasta with you .
So what ingredients do we need for pasta ?
First spaghetti pasta , uh which is the original pasta that was used for this recipe .
You can use , you can use any type of pasta that you like .
Please you be very creative .
Then what we need is we need a or like in England , they're called ancho .
Make sure they are in olive oil .
Don't get anchovies in vinegar or you will ruin the recipe .
We need under salt , we need to wash them properly under water .
So we remove the salt .
Then we need garlic and you use as much garlic as you like .
And then we need a Calama olives .
Now , if you're not in Italy and you can get the olives from , you get kalamata olives because it will be fantastic for this dish .
We need fresh parsley and we need one can of peeled tomatoes or you can use beautiful sweet cherry tomatoes only if you have the nice cherry tomatoes .
Like the one from a you need some beautiful cherry tomatoes .
Oh Go for that .
Go for the peeled tomatoes .
This is so easy and so fast .
So I'm going to cook the pasta at the same time , I'm making the sauce so they will be ready together .
You need a nice , beautiful amount of rock salt to put in your water and always use a large amount of water when you make pasta and then you put the spaghetti inside .
This is for Suzanne and I , so we have about 300 g of spaghetti .
Now , come over here , I want to show you how we are going to make this beautiful sauce .
First , we need to go and wash the capers .
Now it's time to make the sauce warm up your pan and then you want to add extra virgin olive oil a nice amount .
Then what we do , we are going to add the anchovies .
I would say about two per person .
Now , I don't love anchovies .
I'm not a big fan , but this recipe needs the anchovies and what you're gonna do .
Now we are going to melt the anchovies in the other .
When you eat it , you don't really taste it , but they will give such an incredible flavor to this pasta .
So let's wait for the anchovies to melt .
So as we are cooking the anchovies , we are going to add the garlic in there .
You love garlic .
You will love this at the same time .
I'm going to add the capers .
Here we go .
The beautiful yummy capers and we have a wonderful uh olive .
What I'm going to do with the olives is I'm going to crush them like that in there .
I don't wanna cut them .
I just want to them a little bit in my hand .
So they bring out more flavors and then we want to do this for a couple of minutes just to give the flavor .
Just want to , to get the flavors to , to mix , to mix together and to make love .
Now it's time for us to put a little bit of color in this .
I want to show you what we're going to use .
We're gonna use these wonderful peeled tomatoes , little bit of salt .
Not too much .
The reason why we don't use too much salt is because the capers are extremely salty .
The anchovies are salty so go crazy with the pepper but not too much with the salt .
We also want to chop some beautiful fresh parsley so we put some in there , beautiful mix it together .
What I'm going to do ?
II I want , I need to crash .
I need to crush this come and have a look .
Come and have a look .
I need to crush these tomatoes .
Oh my God .
The flavors of the tomatoes are coming out right now .
Beautiful , just a little crush , little tomato mixed with the parsley .
You can use basil if you like , but parsley goes very well with anchovies and the capers .
Now we have all the ingredients pretty much uh flavored , you know , all the ingredients of flavors .
See , there , there's not much left of the anchovies .
Look at that , there's nothing left .
It became a cream .
Now it's time for us to add the beautiful .
So and we give the color to this dish .
Look at that .
Look how fantastic this is .
Yeah , the flavors are really are out now .
And the sauce needs a couple of minutes to cook .
Not too much .
So the history of so if I translate to you , what means it's not gonna be very nice but means prostitute .
So yeah , I know it's not really nice but um this pasta was created in the brothel back in the 20th centuries in Naples .
And because the male need to get some energy before you know , they go and do their business .
The prostitutes in the bro , they used to cook his pasta and this what what they used to have in the house .
This was cheap .
This was always available and it gives you the energy .
So if you like to add extra energy to your beautiful um what I would say is add some chili .
So we're gonna add a little bit of chili , not everyone likes to do it , but I think chili flakes can give you the , the kick that you want .
Especially in the old days when you know this was , uh , pasta was made for those gentlemen .
Now the pasta is cooked .
So I've got the pasta over here , I've got the spaghetti and they are already cooked .
Look how beautiful they are .
We're gonna get this pasta and put it straight in the pan , beautiful spaghetti .
And what we do now we're gonna add the spaghetti in our sauce .
And we are going to toss it .
I want to toss it .
So the spaghetti will get the flavor .
Look as it is .
Look how beautiful it is .
Look how beautiful .
This pasta is beautiful , smooth tasty .
The flavors the flavors are telling me , please eat me , eat me , look as it is and this is how you make your beautiful , delicious pasta .
Look at that .
Say I love pasta , eat me .
We are going to eat you .

So I want a lot , a lot of it .
So is this your plate ?
And the little one here is mine ?
That's so make sure you decorate it .
You wanna put the olives everywhere and they go and find your capers in here .
See , I like to go and find my capers because the capers , believe it or not , most of the flavors are in there .
You got the olives , get some cherry tomatoes , well , some tomatoes and then we get a little bit of parsley to just decorate this beautiful , beautiful , sexy pasta .
And this is how you make a delicious pasta .
