An easy, 15 minute recipe where the traditional spaghetti aglio olio e peperoncino is dressed up with sautéed mushrooms. We love this simple pasta sauce and even add chicken, bacon, anchovies or seafood to it. Perfect for meatless weeknight dinners and a hit with the kids!
Olio e Alici: Anchovy Spaghetti. This recipe is similar to my Grandma's: extra thin spaghetti, anchovy, garlic, oil, parsley, pepper, and romano cheese. Maybe the addition of bread crumbs makes it Sicilian??? Not sure, but it is yummy!
I love nutty, tender roasted cauliflower--it goes really well with the assertive flavor of anchovy. If you are an anchovy lover like me, use the oil from the tin or jar in place of extra-virgin olive oil to make the anchovy sauce.
Prized by chefs and home cooks around the world for their funky, briny flavor and extraordinary versatility, anchovies don't just adorn pizzas, salads, and sandwiches—they make their way into distinctive sauces, rubs, dressings, and dips, where they lend a meaty umami backbone to, well, anything you want. But exactly can you do with them? Let's take a look.
