Print Spaghetti with broccoli

A clean, uncluttered pasta dish with anchovies, chilli and broccoli. This calls for very few ingredients – most from the store cupboard – and is ready in a trice: an ideal last-minute dinner. Add more or less chilli and anchovies according to taste.

Ingredients

  • 90g dried spaghetti
  • 100g broccoli, cut into small florets & thinly sliced stalks
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • ½ fresh red chilli, deseeded & finely chopped, or a few dried chilli flakes
  • 1-2 anchovies, chopped
  • 25g breadcrumbs (use stale bread)
  • Olive oil

Method

  1. Cook the spaghetti according to the packet instructions.
  2. Three minutes before it is ready, add the broccoli to the pan.
  3. Meanwhile heat the oil in a frying pan and add the chillies, anchovies and breadcrumbs. Fry until the breadcrumbs are golden.
  4. Drain the pasta and broccoli and toss in a bowl with ¾ of the breadcrumb mixture.
  5. Drizzle with a little olive oil and serve with the other ¼ of the breadcrumb mixture sprinkled on top.
