skinned, seeded, and chopped

drained and finely chopped
3 tbsp capers, drained and rinsed

Add the tomatoes, olives, anchovies, and capers and bring to a boil over high heat. Return the heat to low and simmer, stirring frequently, for about 15 minutes, or until the juices thicken. Cook the spaghetti in a pot of lightly salted boiling water over high heat according to the package instructions until al dente.
