 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      pound         spaghetti
    1      tablespoon    extra virgin olive oil
    8                    anchovy filets; oiled packed -- oil reserved
                         drain and chop filets
    2                    garlic cloves -- minced
   29      ounces        canned crushed tomatoes in puree
      1/2  cup           mediterranean black olives -- pit and chop
                         then measure
    2      tablespoons   bottled capers -- rinsed
                         and coarsely chopped if large
    1      teaspoon      dried oregano
      1/2  teaspoon      crushed red pepper
    1      pound         medium shrimp -- peeled and deveined
 
 1. Bring a large pot of slightly salted water to a boil over high heat. Add
 the spaghetti and cook, stirring occasionally, until barely tender.
 
 2. While the pasta is cooking, heat the olive oil and oil from the anchovy
 can in a large (12-inch) skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook,
 stirring often, until golden, about 1 minute. Add the anchovy filets and
 stir until they dissolve into paste, about 1 minute.
 
 3. Into the skillet, stir in the tomatoes, olives, capers, oregano and red
 pepper, and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 5 minutes.
 Add the shrimp and cook, stirring occasionally, until the shrimp turn pink
 and firm, about 3 minutes.
 
 4. Drain the pasta and return to the pot. Add the shrimp sauce and mix
 well. Transfer to a warmed, large serving bowl. Serve immediately.

 Notes: This dish is a hearty meal in itself. The puttanesca and fra diavolo
 in the sauce produce a memorable accompaniment to shrimp as well as
 mussels, clams or even canned or frozen lobster meat.
