    Manami's Note:

    This dish is very good but because it has anchovies, many people stick up their noses at it but you should try it, you might even like it.

      This was a very good meal, I meant to serve it with BBq porkchops, which I did for the rest of my family. I however just ate this... I really liked it! I did cut the red pepper flakes in half, since I have small children and I used black beans rather then cannellini beans, because I prefer their flavor. My vegetarian S-I-L was here and tried out some of the pasta, she liked it, but said it needed a little something more... maybe more garlic, or chives. All in all I liked it and will make it again. It was a bit involved to put it together but you gave great instructions!!
