Cut the peppers into narrow strips.

In a large bowl, combine the peppers and their juice with the tomato, oil, olives, parsley, anchovies, garlic and oregano.

Add salt and pepper to taste (remember, anchovies & olives may be salty.)

Cook the pasta al dente and drain, reserving some of the cooking water.

Toss the pasta with the pepper mixture, adding a little of the reserved cooking water of the sauce seems dry.

Serve immediately. Makes 6 servings.
