Pasta smothered in herbs, olives and lemon juice and tossed in an anchovy garlic paste. —Vicky | Things I Made Today

What You'll Need
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup Panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 12 ounces linguine
  • 4-8 oil packed anchovy fillets, depending on how fishy you like it
  • 3 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chives, chopped
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil, chopped
  • 1 cup mixed Kalamata olives, pitted, and chopped
  • 1/4 cup capers, drained
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan, grated, plus more for garnish
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  1. In a small saucepan, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium heat. Add breadcrumbs and stir to coat. Toast for about 5 minutes, until golden brown. Transfer to plate and mix with lemon zest.
  2. Bring a large pot of heavily salted water to boil. Cook linguine until al dente, reserve ½ a cup of cooking water, then drain the rest. Rinse pasta under cold water until remaining components are ready.
  3. Meanwhile, using a mortar and pestle or the side of a knife, mash anchovies and garlic together to form a paste. Transfer to large bowl and toss with chives, parsley, basil, olives, capers, and remaining ½ cup of olive oil.
  4. Add pasta and about half the reserved cooking liquid and toss pasta to coat. If pasta seems dry, add more cooking liquid, a little at a time. Add Parmesan and toss to coat. Add lemon juice and season with salt and pepper.
  5. Serve pasta with Panko crumbs and additional Parmesan cheese on top.
