Spaghetti with anchovies and breadcrumbs: a recipe Ligurian cuisine. I dare say a beneficial recipe, since it is collected in the book "Research in the Kitchen", made by the Coordinators Telethon to help finance scientific research. In particular, thanks to Albertina, Mara and Gianni representing so well the sweetness and determination of Liguria. Prepare it really is that simple, and it is a very tasty dish.

What is needed
Ingredient Quantity
spaghetti gr. 320
anchovy fillets gr. 80
