¼ cup extra virgin olive oil 3 garlic cloves, sliced 2 whole salt-cured anchovies, filleted, or 4-6 anchovy fillets in oil (see tips above) 3-4 tablespoons coarsely chopped walnuts Red chili flakes to taste 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley Coarse sea salt 14-16 ounces good quality spaghetti (whole wheat)

Recipe Ingredients for anchovie and walnut pasta

1/4 cup olive oil
3 cloves garlic
4 anchovy fillets
3 tbsp walnuts
1 tbsp fresh parsley
1/8 tsp salt
14 oz spaghetti

Recipe Directions for anchovie and walnut pasta

  1. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet and sauté the garlic over low heat until it barely begins to color. Add the anchovy fillets and, with a wooden spoon, mash them until they dissolve into the oil. Add the walnuts, chili flakes, and parsley. Stir to combine and remove from the heat.

  2. Bring 5 to 6 quarts of water to a rolling boil. Add about 3 tablespoons of sea salt, then add the spaghetti and cook until it offers considerable resistance to the tooth, approximately three-quarters of the package-recommended cooking time. Drain the pasta, reserving 2 cups of the starchy pasta water. (Note: You'll probably only use a portion of the reserved water, but having a little extra on hand is helpful in case the sauce needs more.)

  3. Add the spaghetti to the sauce in the skillet along with ½ cup reserved pasta-cooking water, and cook over high heat, stirring with a wooden fork, until the pasta is cooked al dente, adding a little more pasta water as the sauce dries.
