14 March 2015 || Fish and seafood, Pasta, Recipes

An easy, healthy, cheap (the approximate cost for each person is just £1.30) and quick to make spaghetti recipe. The secret to creating a great dish with such simple ingredients is to use only best quality, authentic Italian ones, such as extra virgin olive oil (even better if it’s organic), spaghetti from Gragnano and anchovy fillets from Cetara: the result won’t disappoint!

Ingredients for Spaghetti with Anchovies, Breadcrumbs and  Walnuts (4 people)

360g Gragnano Pasta Spaghetti

5 Cetara anchovy fillets in oil

3 tbsps organic extra virgin olive oil

2 tbsps breadcrumbs

1 garlic glove

2 walnuts

Small bunch of parsley


Cook the spaghetti in plenty of salted water.

In the meantime chop the anchovy fillets into small pieces and put them in a pan with the extra virgin olive oil, the crushed clove of garlic and the chopped walnuts.

Cook on low heat for 3/4 minutes until the garlic starts to become slightly brown.

Turn off the heat and add the breadcrumbs to the pan and stir well.

When the spaghetti is cooked (al dente) drain and add to the condiments in the pan

Stir well on a high heat for 10/15 seconds.

Serve adding some leaves of parsley to decorate each plate of spaghetti.


If you would like to enjoy this dish with a glass of wine, it goes well with a fresh dry Italian white wine such as the organic Falanghina Rami DOC that you can buy from for just £10.75 a bottle.


Enjoy and Buon Appetito!!!
