Step 1

Bring the water to a boil in a pasta pot with an insert. Add the salt and Fusilli. For commercially pre­pared Fusilli, follow package directions. For homemade, the cooking time will be less but more than for most types of homemade pasta because of their thickness. Cook until al dente, 4 to 5 minutes. Drain the Fusilli and place them in a large bowl. Toss with the 1 tablespoon olive oil, cover, and set aside.

Heat the 2 tablespoons olive oil in a medium-size saucepan over low heat, stir in the anchovies with a wooden spoon, and cook until they almost dissolve into the oil. Stir in the olives and tomato sauce, bring the ingredients to a boil, and cook for 2 minutes. Stir in the mozzarella, pour the sauce over the fusilli, and mix everything together very quickly, allowing the cheese to melt. Add the salt, pepper, and oregano, toss again, and transfer the mixture to a pasta platter. Serve immediately.
