Serves 1 Prep: 2 min Cook: 12 min

Ingredients

Olive oil 3 tbsp
Garlic 2 cloves
Dried chilli 1
Anchovy fillets 4-5
Salt for pasta water 1% of water
Spaghetti 100-120g

Method

1
These are the only ingredients that you need for a good flavour, once you use olive oil and pasta water.
2
Start boiling the pasta. As anchovies are quite salty, add salt about 1% of the amount of water (about 10g to one litre water).
3
Add the olive oil to a large frying pan and heat. Fry the sliced garlic on medium heat and after a minute add the deseeded dried chilli.
4
Add the anchovy fillets and fry for 30 seconds.
5
Just before the garlic starts to burn, add 3 ladles of pasta water and cook on high heat to reduce the sauce.
6
When the pasta is cooked, drain off the water and add into the frying pan. Mix the sauce and pasta together for 1 minute on medium heat to emulsify the oil and water.
7
The sauce will be well mixed (emulsified) when it thickens and looks creamy.
