    Tracy K's Note:

    This delicious combination of ingredients unfortunately leaves one with breath that could melt glass... I generally only make this when I will not be having any romantic encounters for at least a day!

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Bring a few quarts of water to a good rolling boil, using the 2-3 Tbsp of salt to flavor the water.
    2. 2
      You should be able to taste the salt in the pasta water, if you can't taste it, add more salt.
    3. 3
      Prep all ingredients in advance while you wait for the water to boil (mince the garlic, grate the cheese, chop the sun-dried tomatoes, etc.) so that you can toss the sauce together while the pasta is cooking.
    4. 4
      Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium-low heat, add garlic and turn heat to low.
    5. 5
      It is CRUCIAL that the garlic not burn or turn brown.
    6. 6
      Add pepper flakes, anchovies, and sun dried tomatoes and cook on low heat for 3-4 minutes until the garlic loses the raw taste and the anchovies disintegrate.
    7. 7
      When pasta is cooked al dente, drain it and add it to the skillet with the sauce, tossing to coat well.
    8. 8
      Sprinkle with the grated cheese.
    9. 9
      Pour the pasta into a bowl, or just eat it out of the skillet-- after all, there's nobody there to see!

      Tracy, this was SO yummy! I didn't make it as a "single girl " thing, though---quite the opposite, DH is going on a 90-mile bike ride tomorrow and needs to carb-load. So we both ate all that garlic (I more than doubled the recipe, used about 8-9 cloves!!! my poor students!) and 3 whole tins of anchovies. Smelly! But it was wonderful! Thanks Tracy! Oh, and I also added some canned black olives I had lying around. Yummy addition--just mashed them up and sauteed along with the anchovies and red pepper flakes.
