Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Set an oven rack about 8 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler. Toss broccoli in a bowl with 1 tablespoon olive oil and salt; spread on a large baking sheet.

  • Broil in the preheated oven until broccoli is tender and beginning to brown, 5 to 10 minutes.

  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook linguine at a boil until tender yet firm to the bite, about 11 minutes.

  • Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet over low heat. Add anchovies, garlic, and red pepper flakes; cook and stir until anchovies dissolve into the oil, 3 to 5 minutes. Season with pepper. Mix in roasted broccoli.

  • Drain pasta and return to the pot. Add broccoli-anchovy mixture and mix well. Drizzle remaining olive oil on top.

Cook's Note:

Avoid adding too much salt, as the anchovies are already salted.

Some of my favorite ingredients all in one easy to prepare recipe. I made it exactly as proscribed. Probably could be on the table 15 minutes from the start if you use broccoli pieces. My husband voted this recipe to the trophy shelf! Don t be worried that the anchovy flavor will dominate if you re not a mega anchovy fan. The flavors blend smoothly. Delicious & healthful.
