Ingredients

How to make it

  • Coarsely chop the anchovies, slice the garlic and onion paper-thin and set aside.
  • While you bring the water for the pasta to a boil (1.5 litre) heat the bread crumbs in a pan over a medium flame. Stir continuously till the bread crumbs become a nice tan colour. Remove the pan from the flame, pour half the EVO oil into it and stir till all the bread crumbs are coated. Set aside.
  • When the water boils, salt it and add the spaghetti. While the spaghetti cook heat the remaining EVO oil in a pan on a medium-high flame. Once hot, add the chopped anchovies and, helping yourself with a wooden spoon, mash them till they dissolve into the oil. Add the onion and garlic and let cook till they just start to become golden, then add the chilli, reduce the heat and cook for another two minutes; set aside.
  • The pasta should be ready and al dente by now: drain it well and dress it with the anchovy-onion-garlic mixture. Add two thirds of the bread crumbs, the parsley and cheese (if using) and stir well. Divide among two plates and cover with a last sprinkling of toasted bread crumbs.

    My partner does not like anchovies, so i sprung this on him! He loved it. No parsley so I substituted the onion for spring onions putting the (chopped) white part in early, the more delicate green part in at the end and used a fresh chilli from the garden. A+

    This is what I am looking for for this evening. I will use anchovy paste because I have it. My mouth watered when I saw the picture. I use fresh bread crumbs all the time it's worth the extra work. Thanks
