    Japanese Delight's Note:

    This is one of the tastiest ways to perpare broccoli (for a side dish, leave out the pasta). Don't let the anchovies scare you: because they're chopped so fine they melt into the sauce, leaving just a hint of briny flavor that's a perfect complement to the herby broccoli.

      A tasty way to enjoy broccoli and a very nice change from our family's standby pasta dish. It was also very quick so is perfect for an after work meal. I used gemelli pasta as I could not find orecchiette - it worked well. Thanks Japanese Delight.

      Wowee! This is amazing. I knew my partner and I would like it because the anchovies and garlic reminded me of bagna caulda. The house smelled like garlic for two days after, but what a wonderful dish! I did go ahead a use the entire 2 ounce tin of anchovy fillets (I didn't want to waste them). Also used a good Italian Pecorino Romano. I served this as a side to grilled salmon fillets (yes, I added the orecchiette) and I can see where this would make a wonderful main course. Thanks so much for sharing!
