Lemon Anchovy Pasta

Haven't tried that yet - but will shortly

What you need

  • 1 lemon, 1 onion, 1 garlic clove
  • salt, pepper, olive oil
  • parmesan
  • spaghetti pasta
  • slice of bread


  • saucepan 
  • frying pan (for the bread crumbs)
  • large pot for the pasta

How you do it

Step 1

  • take 8 tablespoons good olive oil and pour into saucepan. 
  • peel and chop the onion, cut the garlic clove in half
  • peel 2 stripes from the lemon
  • rinse the anchovy fillets
  • heat up the saucepan with the olive oil and add chopped onions, garlic, lemon skin and anchovy fillets to it
  • cook and stir until the anchovy fillets disintegrate
  • take off the heat and put on the side to cool down

Step 2

  • cut a slice of bread into little cubes
  • heat up a frying pan with very little oil and fry the cubes in the pan until they darken
  • take of the heat and put on the side to cool down

Step 3

  • fill the large pot with water. When it boils enter 1-2 teaspoons of salt to it
  • add spaghetti and boil for ca 8-9 min (or whatever it says on the packaging)
  • when done drain the pasta
  • heat up the sauce pan with the onion/garlic/lemon/anchovies (Step 1)
  • mix the spaghetti into the hot sauce for a minute or two
  • then add the breadcrumbs from Step 2 and mix
  • finally - serve with freshly grated black pepper and parmesan
