I usually make carbonara on the weekend but decided to go in a different direction after spying a can of anchovies and a can of tomatoes in the cupboard. I'm convinced that anchovies are under-utilized in many dishes but I don't add them much because many people (my parents, my roommates, my best friend, my ex) hate them.
Since I was feeding a few friends, including one of my anchovy hating roommates, I had to be very secretive about what was going into the pasta. When it came time for me to pop the little guys into the sauce I made sure Roomie was headed downstairs to put the trash out. The espionage paid off- he liked the pasta so much he went back for two helpings.
