You're not going to taste this and exclaim, "Wow, that's really anchovy-y!" What you'll exclaim (especially if you didn''t make it and don't know what it's called), will be "What *is* that -- it's marvelous!!" From *Everyday Food* magazine, this cooked sauce doesn't need to cook for long: bring to a boil, and then just a 15 minute simmer, so it will work as a weeknight meal. Yummy!
