Spaghetti with Olive Oil, Anchovies, and Parmesan Cheese
¼ cup virgin olive oil
4 large garlic cloves, minced
1 1 ¾ or 2 ounce can anchovy fillets, drained, chopped
8 ounces spaghetti
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
Freshly ground pepper
Chopped fresh Italian Parsley
Freshly Grated Parmesan cheese
Heat oil in heavy small skillet over low heat. Add garlic and cook 2 minutes. Add anchovies and cook until garlic just begins to color, 3 minutes.
Meanwhile, cook spaghetti in large pot of boiling salted water until just tender but still firm to bite, stirring occasionally. Drain well. Return spaghetti to pot. Add oil mixture and lemon juice and toss to coat. Season with pepper. Divide between plates. Sprinkle generously with parsley. Serve, passing Parmesan separately.
2 servings; can be doubled or tripled.
