I love this because it's a simple, rustic dish that's so quick and easy to prepare. I made this for my son's European Cuisine Day at school, and I had kids coming back for 4ths and everyone clamoring for the recipe! Of course, I didn't feel the need to tell the students about the anchovies. Ha ha!! It also did not dry out in my Crock-Pot set on Warm for 2 hours, but please note that I put the sauce and pasta in it after they had cooled. This is a family favorite for us, and we hope it becomes one for your family as well. Manga!
