1. Spoon the oil into a nonreactive medium saucepan and place over moderate heat. Add the onions and saute to soften, 3 to 5 minutes. Add the garlic, anchovies and 1/4 cup of the parsley. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Stir in the tomato paste and then the tomatoes and juice, breaking up the tomatoes with a spoon. Add the pinch of salt and bring to a boil.

Sprinkle the remaining 1/4 cup parsley over the top.
