This is one of many sauces that contain typical southern Italian ingredients – tomatoes, olives and anchovies – and I am sure it is one of the very best. It is the sauce I had in Puglia during one of my many trips to that blessed land of delicious food. Get an olive oil from Puglia, which has a particular and delicious almondy flavour.

This dish is also good cold, in which case you can add a little more olio santo – cold food needs stronger flavouring.
