This supper which comes together in the length of time it takes your pasta to cook, is a satisfying tasty meal for when you really don’t feel like standing in the kitchen cooking, or like me, your husband is away on business and you sat behind the computer the whole day until way passed your normal dinner time. When I make it again, I think I shall add a splash of white wine and or possibly some chopped black olives. I may just add that to the leftovers for lunch.
Anchovie, Garlic and Basil Linguine
250g linguine or pasta of choice
4 garlic cloves crushed
Black pepper to taste
6 basil leaves chiffonade
- Cook the linguine according to packet instructions.
- Mash the anchovies including some of the oil from the bottle or tin in a pan over a medium heat.
- Add the garlic and pasta and stir to combine.
- Add the black pepper, basil and a drizzle of olive oil.
Mandy, this is really my kind of pasta. Simple and with lots of anchovies 🙂
I have to resist eating the anchovies straight out of the bottle Tes. Have a happy day. 🙂
That I know will pack a flavourful punch, anchovies and basil I love them
They really do work well together. Have a great day. 🙂
This is my kind of food, easy and delicious 😉
I don’t make pasta very often BJB but must say this was lovely! Have a super day. 🙂
I really do enjoy using anchovies with pasta and this simple recipe packs a ton of flavor because of them. It’s a great recipe, Mandy, and one that I’ll be making again and again!
Hi John, glad you like the recipe – it is one of those recipes that just works. Have a super day. 🙂
perfect, a simple tasty supper dish. And I like the idea of adding black olives and a dash of white wine 🙂
Wine is always welcomed with pasta, whether on the side or in the meal. Have a great day Claire. 🙂
I love how you have plated this up. It looks delicious and so very inviting. A comforting plate of pasta is such a wonderful dinner and the flavours in your pasta must have been amazing.
Thanks for your lovely kind words Charlie! You have made my afternoon. Have a super day. 🙂

Oooh, Mandy, that really looks delicious and so comforting in this bone-chilling, snowy weather. I also like the idea of chopped black olives in it, but then again I’d love olives in a milkshake if it was allowed. 🙂
Hmm, olives in a milkshake – well why not, I reckon it should be allowed. Have a super day. 🙂
i am one that actually loves the flavor of anchovies so I know I will love this pasta. Simple and elegant yet full of amazing flavor
I love dishes that use few ingredients and produce a powerful flavour. Have a super day Belle. 🙂
This looks so simple and delicious. I love anchovies and have never seen it put into pasta like this. Brilliant, Mandy!
Thanks Joanne, glad you like the idea – I would love to hear how you enjoy it if you make it. Have a super day. 🙂
Simply delicious! Looks great!
Thanks Jen. Have a great day. 🙂
I love these strong flavours, and I love that it can be pulled together in the time it takes the pasta to cook!
My best meals are usually the quick easy ones Tanya. Have a super day. 🙂
A very tasty sounding pasta, and one to keep in my back pocket as it is so easy to find oneself sitting at the computer too long and in need of a simple dish…like almost every day around here! Love the idea of adding the (kalamata, in my book) black olives and wine, too.
Good to know I am not the only one who loses track of time when working. Have a super day. 🙂
One of my favorites.
Seems to be a popular choice. Have a great day. 🙂
I have not tried anything like this before but your photo has sold me. It’s gorgeous and tantalizing and makes me want to dive in Mandy!
Hope you give it a try sometime Geni. Have a lovely day. 🙂
Simply delicious!! I do love anchovies and definitely love pasta! Great week night dinner!!
The nicest ones are always the ones that come together in a short time. Have a lovely day Linda. 🙂
Wow, that looks and sounds super yum!
Thanks for stopping by Asmita. This was a lovely meal. Have a super day. 🙂
You should see what I make when my husband is on business…it’s pathetic. I will definitely add your pasta dish to my list of things to try! I love quick and easy pasta!
I’m sure what you make while your hubby is away is lovely Ashley. Have a super weekend. 🙂
I haven’t had linguine in such a while.. but I LOVE this recipe. I may have to pick up some this weekend and try to make this as soon as I can.
Enjoy it when you make it Kay. Have a lovely weekend. 🙂
Looks and sounds like a wonderful version of Linguine con pesce… I will have to try it with the anchovies some time.
Linguine con pesce sounds very posh! Have a great weekend. 🙂
This is my kind of pasta!!!
Seems the simple ones are always the best. Have a lovely weekend. 🙂
