My favourite 'brain food' (brocolli) with anchovies pasta!

For 2 :

Ingredients
2 small red onions diced into small bits
5 or 6 anchovies diced into small bits (remove oil as much as possible)
1 floret of cut brocolli, washed and dried
1 tsp of garlic minced
4tbs of olive oil

Pasta : 160 gm of any pasta that takes the sauce well, for e.g. oriechietti or fusilli

In a frying pan, melt the diced onions in 4tbs of olive oil in a slow fire, then add the diced anchovies and tsp of minced garlic and continue in slow fire until the anchovies have mashed into the oil. Up the fire slightly and add in the brocolli florets and stir fry them. To soften the brocolli, cover the pan, if you like them still crunchy, then fry for several minutes with opened pan. Put sauce aside and heat up salted water for pasta. When pasta is 'al dente', strain and add to the sauce. Mix well, and serve with freshly ground pepper and parmegianno, and chilled wine.

No additional salt required as anchovies impart a divine salty taste to the dish!

Hi Wizi - Here is my version of broccoli pasta

Instead of onions, I use garlic, and in the 'sauce' I add a squeeze of lemon. I'm very lazy - the anchovies go straight from the jar to the pan so I dont have to wash an oily chopping board.

When the pasta and broccoli is cooked, I toss the 'sauce' through with halved cherry tomatoes and fresh basil or chopped continental parsley.

And finally, I finish with a drizzle of good EVOO and grated fresh parmesan.

YUMMMM

wizi,

I always do this anchovy pasta (but I'm not a fan of brocolli though)... that garlic-y and salt-y lovely fragrance... heavenly!

Cooking fresh button mushroom in the anchovy/oily mix is great too!! with that version, I serve it with rocket dressed with EVOO and lemon, heaped on top and more shavings of parmesan.

Hi, may I know if there is a chilled version of this salad? Do I need to fry the garlic and anchovies? Or can I just mix everything with the cooked pasta?
