Orecchiette with anchovies and sun dried sweet peppers.


  • Makes 2 servings:

  • 3 medium sun dried sweet peppers

  • 2 anchovies in oil

  • 3 tablespoons tomato sauce

  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 garlic clove

  • 2 cups orecchiette (or the serving size you like of the pasta you have)


  1. Let orecchiette boil in a big pot of salted water, if they’re dried they should boil for 14-16 minutes (taste them).

  2. In a pan heat extra-virgin olive oil, add chopped peppers (without seeds) and garlic and stir frying for a couple of minutes then add anchovies and let them “melt” with peppers.

  3. Remove the garlic, add the tomato sauce and stir well. Cook for 2-3 minutes more then use a blender and reduce the sauce to cream.

  4. Season your pasta hot with this sauce and eat immediately, it’s sooo tasty!
