Anchovy Carbonara
Pasta with Marinated Anchovies and Garlic


  • 1 Pound bucatini or spaghetti

  • 8 Marinated anchovy fillets with garlic

  • 2 Cloves garlic minced

  • 2 Eggs and 1 egg yolk beaten

  • 3 Tablespoons olive oil

  • 3⁄4 Teaspoon red pepper flakes

  • Fresh parsley roughly chopped

  • Kosher salt


  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and cook the pasta to 1 minute less than package instructions.

  2. Beat the eggs and egg yolk in a small bowl.

  3. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil and add the anchovy fillets. Break the anchovies up

    with the back of a spoon and stir until melted. Add the red pepper flakes and garlic and cook for one minute longer or until the garlic just starts to turn golden around the edges. Remove the pan from heat.

  4. Reserving a cup of the water, drain the pasta and add it to the skillet with the anchovy sauce. Slowly add the beaten eggs to the pasta while it's still hot, tossing as you pour. Add some pasta water as needed to loosen the sauce.

  5. Garnish with parsley and serve immediately!
