500 g red and yellow cherry tomatoes, quartered
150 g black olives, stoned
6 anchovy fillets in oil, drained and finely sliced
1 clove garlic, finely sliced
extra virgin olive oil
400 g orecchiette pasta
1 sprig fresh marjoram, oregano or thyme, leaves picked
Put the tomatoes into a large mixing bowl with the olives, anchovies and garlic. Add a few lugs of the best olive oil you can find, season to taste and gently stir together.
Cook the pasta in plenty of boiling salted water until tender, then drain and add to the mixing bowl. Stir it all together and let it sit for a minute or two, so the pasta starts to suck up all the lovely flavoured juices in the bowl. Stir again, check the seasoning and serve sprinkled with the marjoram, oregano or thyme leaves.

BUYING SUSTAINABLY SOURCED FISH
Buying sustainably sourced fish means buying fish that has been caught without endangering the levels of fish stocks and with the protection of the environment in mind. Wild fish caught in areas where stocks are plentiful are sustainably sourced, as are farmed fish that are reared on farms proven to cause no harm to surrounding seas and shores.
When buying either wild or farmed fish, ask whether it is sustainably sourced. If you're unable to obtain this information, don't be afraid to shop elsewhere – only by shopping sustainably can we be sure that the fantastic selection of fish we enjoy today will be around for future generations.
