I saw a post over at Viaggi e Sapori and thought it would make a simple and tasty side dish to go with the chicken dish that I made tonight. This came together really quickly and is a great, easy pasta dish to have in your repertoire. I used about 1 1/2 teaspoons of anchovy paste instead of fillets, and it worked out great.
Spaghetti Con Pane e Acciughe (Spaghetti with Anchovies and Bread Crumbs)
Viaggi e Sapori
Ingredients (for 2 p.): 160 g spaghetti, 3 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil, 3Tbsp bread crumbs, 3 anchovies, 1 lemon.
While pasta is cooking in salty boiling water, put the oil and the bread crumbs in a pan and toast it. Add lemon zest at the end. In another pan put some oil and the anchovies, let them melt and add lemon juice.
When pasta is cooked mix it to the anchovies and lemon and sprinkle the bread crumbs on top.
