Spaghetti Siciliana

all details

Bursting with barely cooked vegetables, this pasta is a quick and nutritious option. If you want a vegetarian version, simply omit the anchovies and add some dried chilli flakes instead if desired. Fettuccine and bucatini could also work well in this dish if you want a change from spaghetti.
