DIRECTIONS

  • 1/2 pound pasta for 2 generous servings.
  • Prepare the sauce while the pasta water is boiling.
  • I like to use vermicelli.
  • In a small skillet melt the butter.
  • Add minced garlic.
  • Cook until golden brown until it smells toasted.
  • Do not let it scorch or it will taste bitter.
  • When the garlic is golden brown, add the entire can of anchovies, including oil and the 3 tablespoons of olive oil.
  • Cook and stir until the anchovies dissolve.
  • If the pasta is not cooked yet, turn off the heat.
  • When the pasta is cooked, finish the sauce.
  • Add light cream to the sauce, and cook until it comes to a rolling boil.
  • Pour over the well drained pasta and toss vigorously.
  • Serve with parmesan cheese.
