Linguine con acciughe, peperoncino e aglio
Linguine with Anchovies, Chilli & Garlic

About This Recipe

Are you looking for a delicious recipe with a difference? If you are, you’ve found it! Here’s my linguine with anchovies, chilli & garlic for you to enjoy.

In Italy this would traditionally have been served as an inexpensive dish to feed a crowd. It’s still a great standby recipe, using ingredients that can mostly be found in store cupboards but which together create something that has great flavours and textures. The gentle kick from the chilli and crunch from freshly toasted breadcrumbs really makes my mouth water! All it needs as an accompaniment is a crisp green salad and a chilled bottle of Vermentino wine.

Feast your eyes on the finest linguine with anchovies, chilli & garlic! It’s straightforward and fun to make this great dish. Simply follow the instructions below and get the perfect result.

Step By Step

  1. Place a medium frying pan over a low heat, pour in the olive oil and gently fry the garlic until golden all over. Remove the garlic and add the chilli flakes and anchovies to the pan. Cook for about 3 minutes or until the anchovies are melted into the oil, stirring with a wooden spoon. Set aside.
  2. Place a clean frying pan over a medium heat and toast the breadcrumbs until crispy and golden brown. Set aside.
  3. Cook the linguine in a large saucepan of salted boiling water until al dente. To get the perfect al dente bite, cook the pasta for 1 minute less than instructed on the packet. Once the linguine is cooked, drain and tip back into the same pan it was cooked in.
  4. Return the pan of linguine to a low heat and pour over the anchovy oil, chopped parsley and breadcrumbs. Stir it all together for 30 seconds to allow the flavours to combine fully.
  5. Serve immediately.

GINO’S TIP: Don’t waste the ends of fresh bread loaves. If a loaf is beginning to turn stale, blitz it into crumbs, tip the crumbs into a freezer bag and freeze for use in recipes like this.

Once you’re done, simply sit back and enjoy your linguine with anchovies, chilli & garlic and don’t forget to check out other great authentic Italian recipes including great antipasti recipes, Italian pasta recipes, Italian soup recipes, Italian beef dishes and authentic pizza recipes.

Spaghettini alle cozze, pomodorini e vino biancoSpaghettini with Mussels, Cherry Tomatoes & White Wine

I love recipes that require just a few good-quality ingredients and are simple to make yet really have the ‘wow factor’, such as this pasta dish with mussels. You don’t have to use the bottarga - the dish stands alone without it - but a Sardinian cook would almost certainly grate it over the top of the finished dish.

Cannelloni al Pesto GenoveseCannelloni with Pesto and Béchamel Sauce

Cannelloni was invented in Sorrento in the early 1900s by a chef from Naples. Today you’ll find a recipe for it in many Italian cookery books, so I had to include a version here. As you'll see, this is a traditional-style cannelloni with a bit of a twist, and I think you will love the result.

Strudel Italiano ClassicoClassic Italian Apple Strudel

This dessert is usually associated with Germany and Austria, but it is also often prepared in the northern regions of Italy. Although the classic strudel is made with apples, it can also be made with other fruit fillings such as cherries, peaches or pears, depending on the time of year and what fruit is in season. A fantastic dessert that can be eaten warm or cold, as a pudding or served at teatime....

Grape cake is a rustic Italian bake, which is traditionally made during the grape harvest when the fruits are in abundance. It can be eaten at any time of day – even as a dessert with a glass of Vin Santo. The combination of butter and oil makes this a really light cake and very, very moreish.
