Someone recently asked me to add some more quick fix meals to the blog. I got to thinking about things I could experiment with and pasta was the first thing to come to mind. Of the endless varieties of pasta meals out there, most can be prepared in the same amount of time it takes you to boil the pasta and today I’m introducing you to yet another one. A quite scrumptious one in fact with garlic, crushed red pepper, anchovies and golden toasted bread crumbs.
Ok, Ok, I know that having the “anchovies” in the title of this recipe is going to scare a few of you off. But don’t run away just yet. You see, much like the anchovies in my Spaghetti Puttanesca recipe, the anchovies in this recipe are minced fine and sauteed in olive oil until they dissolve. This process removes any of the “fishy” taste that some may associate with anchovies and instead it adds a savory dimension to the dish that I just can’t get enough of. So even if you think you aren’t an anchovy fan I say give this a shot, it just might surprise you.
