Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a large skillet. Saute onion and garlic until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add olives, capers, anchovy paste, oregano and red pepper to the skillet. Cook for about 2 minutes, and add the tomatoes. Simmer mixture for 5-6 minutes. Add parsley, kale and basil to the tomato mixture, and toss to combine. Toss in cooked pasta, mixing well.
