Place the octopus on top of this mixture and season with salt and pepper.  Cover the pot very tightly and simmer for about 45 minutes.

Cook the spaghetti in plenty of boiling salted water until it is 'al dente' (firm to the bite).  Drain and turn onto a warm serving dish. Mix the octopus sauce into the spaghetti.
