Vermicelli con la Mollica di Pane

Recipe from: Calabria a Tavola by Ferretti and Serra.

Very easy, very quick, very tasty.

500gr vermicelli pasta
2 cloves of garlic
4 salted anchovies
one hot pepper
100gr of bread crumbs
salt.

First toast the two cloves of garlic in olive oil until they take on a brown golden color.

Remove the garlic before adding the pepper (which has been chopped into small pieces and the anchovies (with the salt and spine removed)

Add the bread crumbs. 'Mollica' refers to the soft part of the loaf so throw away the crust before you make the bread crumbs.

Boil the pasta in slightly salty water as the anchovies will already contain sufficient salt.

Cook until 'al dente' and following draining place in the pan of the oil and bread mixture.

Mix well and serve immediately.
