READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by evelynathens

A great sauce to make when you haven't got much time to fuss over dinner. This tastes wonderful and needs only a green salad and a glass of wine to make a fabulous meal.

this is such a simple quick wonderful recipe i couldn't help playing with it. i had fresh parsley and basil, which i chopped and also used the whole jar of anchovies, i love them!! i had some capers left in a small jar so i drained and rinsed them and used them as well, maybe 1 tbsp. i chopped the garlic and left it in, added the cooked cappellini, and voila! instant dinner ala evelyn!
