    Mia in Germany's Note:

    A friend brought this recipe home from a hunting trip to Italy. He and his group ended up in a farm house somewhere in the middle of nowhere in northern Italy, and the elderly lady threw this together to feed them. Amounts are a guess. Our friend told us "She threw olive oil, lots of parsley, shrimps, anchovis, tomato paste, canned tomatoes, pepperoni and garlic into her skillet, fied it for some minutes and then added cooked spaghetti, mixed everything and served it". I've made it many times now and always did exactly what the Italian lady did - as long as you use lots of parsley and a little less of the other ingredients, you'll never go wrong!

      We loved this...I have to admit that I used anchovy paste instead of fillet...I didn't want to waste a can of those little guys...so now I have the flavor in a tube...just like my tomato paste...makes things real handy...I also chopped up some cherry tomatoes instead of using the can...this dish looks so pretty and has such an overall nice taste...I barely tasted the anchovies...so next time I will increase the amount...although I used the amount that said it was equal to a whole fillet...or maybe I don't want it to taste to fishy...who knows...this was so easy to prepare no wonder it was just tossed together to feed a few hungry guys...Thanks for sharing the recipe...=)
