Heat olive oil in large Dutch oven. Add anchovies and stir together until oil and anchovies make a paste. Add the tomatoes, liquid and all. Break up the tomatoes and cook for 2 hours, then add the basil, oregano and half the garlic. Cook for 6 to 8 hours, adding a little water as needed. The sauce will become a dark, rich red. In the last half hour, add the remaining garlic, olives and capers. Cook for a few minutes to blend the flavors. Serve over pasta and pass grated Parmesan.
