Really fun flavors. We halved the recipe (except for the anchovies, because we really love them and the flavor they impart!), used a hybrid of cauliflower and broccoli (we were short on cauli), Banza chickpea pasta, and peppadew peppers. It paired great with a briny/salty Corsican white wine. Will definitely be making this again.
