  • 1 tin anchovies

  • 1/2 jars sun-dried tomatoes

  • 2 handfuls pasta

  • 1 handful parmesan


  1. Put the pasta on to cook.
  2. Put the anchovies plus oil from the tin into a cold pan and put over a low heat. Stir and bash about a bit until you have a smooth paste and you have the barest sizzle.
  3. Add tomatoes that you have scissored into acceptable size strips and leave to warm through.
  4. Drain the pasta once al dente. Combine the pasta and anchovy/tomato sauce. Serve with shaved Parmesan, freshly ground black pepper and wine.

Handy Hint

All the ingredients are long life and so by ensuring you have the above in your cupboard/fridge in the case of the Parmesan, you can whistle this up when the cupboard is otherwise bare.
I have also boxed up the above, adding a box of chocs, with an instructions sheet, as a present for the difficult to buy for. It was very well received!

    The sauce is overtly 'fishy' but pleasantly savoury, give it a try!
