    Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan and then add the garlic, onion, chili and anchovies. Fry for 1-2 minutes and then add the capers, olives and tomatoes. Stir over a high heat until the tomatoes have softened. Check the seasoning (the anchovies, capers and olives are all quite salty so you probably won't need to add any extra). Add the basil, mix well and then stir into the pasta of your choice. Finish with some fresh parmesan shavings.
