How to prepare the broccoli and anchovy pasta recipe

  1. First, wash the broccoli well under running water and remove the florets.
  2. Bring a large pot filled with salted water to a boil and add the broccoli and pasta: cooking times are the same.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large pan, heat the oil with the garlic clove and the chilli pepper then add the anchovy fillets and let them melt over low heat.
  4. Once the pasta is ready, drain it directly with a skimmer in the pan with the sauce and cook over a high flame for a couple of minutes.
  5. Serve hot, completing with grated Parmesan cheese.

An equally simple alternative is broccoli and anchovy pasta with breadcrumbs. Toast 3 tablespoons in a pan with a drizzle of oil and sprinkle it on the pasta instead of the cheese: it will give a pleasant crunchy note.
