Spicy Tomato Sauce from Giada de Laurentiis's Everyday Italian

['3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil', '1 small onion, minced', '2 garlic cloves, minced', '1/2 cup pitted black olives, coarsely chopped', '2 tablespoons drained capers, rinsed', '1/2 teaspoon sea salt, plus more to taste', 'Generous pinch of dried crushed red pepper flakes', '1 28-ounce can crushed Italian tomatoes']

In a large skillet, heat the oil over a medium-high flame. When almost smoking, add the onion and garlic and sauté for 3 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium and add the olives, capers, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, and red pepper flakes, and sauté for 1 minute. Add the tomatoes and simmer until reduced slightly, about 20 minutes. Season the sauce with more salt to taste. (The sauce can be made 1 day ahead. Cool, then cover and refrigerate. Rewarm over medium heat before using.)
