Anchovy and Celery Pasta

Anchovy and Celery Pasta

The nice aroma and taste from fried anchovy really goes well with celery. This is simple to make, but you'll want to eat it again and again.

Ingredients: 2 servings

200 g
1 or 2 stalks
1 clove
Red chili pepper
1 -2 pieces
Anchovy (filet)
Olive oil
2 tablespoons
to taste
Finely chopped parsley
to garnish
Black olive (if you like)


1. Boil water in a pan, add salt, then add pasta. Slice celery diagonally as thin as possible.
2. Remove the core of the garlic and slice thinly. Remove seeds from chili pepper and cut into thin rounds.
3. Heat olive oil and garlic in the pan, and fry until nicely browned.
4. Add chili pepper and anchovies into Step 3, and break them up as you fry them. Add celery and fry briefly.
5. Add cooked pasta into Step 4 and stir fry. Taste, and if it needs more salt add hot water from the pasta pan.
6. Transfer to serving plates and enjoy!
