Bring a pot of salted water to a boil, add the pasta and cook according to the package instructions.


Heat the oil in a large pan, add the anchovy paste, garlic and red pepper flakes and cook over medium heat for 1 — 2 minutes, stirring constantly.


Coarsely chop the tomatoes and add them to the pan. Then, season with salt and pepper to taste.
