Ingredients

  • 2 anchovies

  • 2 garlic cloves, minced

  • Chilli flakes

  • Tomato paste

  • 80g pasta of your choice (I like bucatini)

  • Pumpkin seeds

  • Basil leaves

  • Parmesan

  • Salt and pepper

  • Olive oil

Directions

  • Cook your pasta in salted boiling water according to the packet’s instructions (but taste it as you go, you want it to still have some bite).
  • Meanwhile, in a frying pan add a good glug (4-5 tablespoons) of olive oil and garlic. Put on a low heat and cook for a couple of minutes. You don’t want the garlic to burn, just perfume the oil.
  • Next add the anchovies (dw they will melt into the sauce, anchovy haters!) a pinch of chilli flakes and a good squeeze of tomato paste. Cook everything down for 2-3 minutes.
  • When the pasta is almost cooked, add it into the sauce with a mugful of pasta water. You want to cook the pasta into the sauce for a couple of minutes, so the sauce thickens and goes glossy.
  • Plate up and serve with a scattering of pumpkin seeds, basil and a grating of parmesan.
