Linguine with Anchovies & Fresh Breadcrumbs

Linguine with Anchovies & Fresh Breadcrumbs

We met Teresa in Messina who invited us into her beautiful Italian home & showed us how to make some of her favorite family recipes.  This Linguine recipe is one that she started making just to get creative in the kitchen but with anchovies as the main ingredient, it's super healthy too!

Anchovies may be classed as a super food for their high concentration of omega 3 fatty acids which are crucial nutrients for overall wellness.  Getting plenty of omega 3s in your diet is associated with many great health benefits including a healthy heart, better brain function, reduced bone & joint pain due to their anti-inflammatory properties, glowing skin and healthy eyes. 

Your body doesn't produce omega 3 on its own which is why The American Heart Association recommends eating 2 servings of fatty fish per week.  Anchovies are low in mercury which makes them a safe option when adding fatty fish to your diet.  Sardines are nutritionally similar to anchovies and are also low in mercury and could be used in this recipe if you prefer.

The combination of the anchovies and the omega 9 fatty acids in the Extra Virgin Olive Oil make this a health boosting recipe.  If you're concerned about the linguine and want a more nutritious option, why not use Papa Vince Tumminia Pasta which is made with ancient grain and contains 6 times more fiber than regular pasta.

Ingredients for 6-8 people

1 lb cooked linguine
12 anchovy fillets
1 -2 pints cherry tomatoes
3-4 garlic cloves
Fresh parsley
Fresh breadcrumbs
Red pepper flakes
Cup of white wine
Papa Vince Sea Salt, Black Pepper
Papa Vince Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)

 Directions

  1. Put chopped garlic, some of the chopped fresh parsley & just a sprinkle of red pepper flakes into a large frying pan with a generous amount of Papa Vince EVOO.
  2. Gently fry on a medium heat until the garlic becomes golden.
  3. Add the anchovies & continue to fry allowing them to melt into the pan.
  4. Add a cup of white wine to smoke the anchovies.
  5. Add the cherry tomatoes & gently fry until they are ‘al dente’ (just a little soft).
  6. Add the cooked linguine to the frying pan and a glass of water that was used to cook the pasta.  Mix all the ingredients together.
  7. Serve immediately with extra EVOO, fresh parsley and fresh breadcrumbs.

Pesce Stocco

Pesce Stocco is an ancient Sicilian recipe that dates back to Norman times when Northern Europeans conquered Sicily and influenced their culture, landscape and cuisine.  Pesce Stocco uses stockfish which is fish typical from Scandinavia.

Vitina met Teresa in Messina who showed her how to make a lighter & healthier version of this popular dish.  She calls it a 'one pot fish dish!'  You can also use a different type of fish just be sure that it's a meaty fish or you'll find that the fish cooks quicker than the potatoes.  You know this dish is ready when the potatoes are soft.
