Easy Spaghetti with Anchovies and Breadcrumbs

Easy Spaghetti with Anchovies and Breadcrumbs

This recipe is a favorite in our family. With two kids, I often have to throw together a quick pasta and we all prefer this fresh, zesty, and flavorful dish over using a jar of bland pasta sauce. Our Robust Olive Oil nicely balances the garlic and briny anchovy. 



Makes 4 servings


  • 400 g spaghetti (1 box)
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 1 can of anchovies in oil 50g, or 33g drained
  • 3 hot red peppers - I recommend Fresno or Chili Pepper
  • 6 tbsp Damya Robust Olive Oil 
  • 3 sprigs of parsley, finely chopped
  • 4 tbsp breadcrumbs
  • Salt & pepper


  1. Cook the spaghetti to al dente in salted water
  2. Meanwhile, cut the peppers, chop the garlic then put them in a pan with the anchovies and Olive Oil
  3. Fry everything for approx. 5 mins, until the anchovies have broken down
  4. Add the chopped parsley and breadcrumbs; Crisp approx. 2 min
  5. Drain the spaghetti and add to pan with a little of the pasta cooking water
  6. Mix and add salt and pepper to taste
