      I'm not sure what it is with this recipe... I love pasta. I like anchovies. And I like broccoli. I just didn't like them all together. My husband liked it, but I couldn't finish mine. It was too fishy and salty.

      Why did it take me to my late 50s to realize that the secret of anchovies is not as a topping, rather dissolved into a sauce? Think of all the years I've wasted! My first experiment was with arugula (fabulous -- see my review), but with broccoli and shaved parm runs an awfully close second. And now on to cauliflower!
