Anchovy Pasta Sauce- An Italian Christmas Eve Tradition

2 cans of anchovies in olive oil
2 cans of tomato puree 28 oz each
4 cloves of garlic minced
2 tbsp of fresh basil and 2 tbsp of fresh parsley chopped
1 cup of water
red pepper flakes/black pepper to taste
I added  2 tbsp of Kalamata olives
Check for salt

In a large pot place the anchovies with the olive oil in the pot on semi hight heat and let the anchovies melt into the oil. After they have melted add the rest of the ingredients and let simmer for about 25 mins and I usually place in a crock pot until ready to serve.
In our family we traditionally use angel hair pasta  when we serve.

WW points are zero for the sauce I just count the pasta
