Prepare pasta according to package directions. While pasta is cooking, combine plum tomatoes, onion, garlic, basil, and red pepper flakes in a 2 quart saucepan and heat to boiling.

Reduce heat and simmer until the liquid is reduced by half, approximately 10-20 minutes and lower heat to a simmer. Stir the tuna, parsley, olives and anchovies (if using) into the sauce and simmer for 5 minutes. Check the seasoning and add salt and pepper if necessary.

When pasta is complete, drain well and return it to the pot. Add the sauce and stir until it is evenly distributed. Transfer the pasta to four serving bowls or platter and serve immediately.  Add grated cheese as an option garnish.
