  • Pasta dough

    Mix the flour and salt in a bowl. Add the eggs and oil, mix, knead for approx. 15 mins. to form a smooth dough. Shape into a ball, then leave to rest for approx. 30 mins. at room temperature under a bowl rinsed in hot water.
  • To shape

    On a well-floured surface, roll out the dough in batches to approx. 2 mm thick. Keep separating the dough from the work surface. Cut the dough lengthwise into strips approx. 3 cm wide, then cut crosswise into pieces approx. 4 cm wide using a pastry wheel. The pieces don't need to be identical.
  • Sauce

    Heat the oil in a frying pan, sauté the garlic and chilli pepper. Add the olives, anchovy fillets and capers, cook briefly. Add the cherry tomatoes, season, simmer for approx. 20 mins., gently crush the tomatoes with a fork.
  • Pasta

    Cook the maltagliati in boiling salted water for approx. 1 min., drain, mix into the sauce. Garnish with parsley just before serving.
  • Note:

    Maltagliati translates as "poorly cut" and was not originally a type of pasta in its own right. It was made from the scraps of dough left behind after cutting tagliatelle and other similar types of dough.
