Pasta ammuddicata is both simple and tasty. You only need a handful of breadcrumbs toasted in our best olive oil EVO and some fillets of anchovies to make an excellent dish. Take good care in selecting the best ingredients, especially: homemade bread, olive oil EVO, anchovies and above all excellent Bucatini (an Italian type of pasta, similar to Spaghetti)!

Breadcrumbs to taste

150 gr. Fillets of Anchovies finely chopped

Antonio Amato Olive Oil EVO

70 gr. Grated Pecorino

Remove bones from the anchovies. Rinse them in cold water and let them dry. Fry in a pan with olive oil EVO and the chopped garlic. Add the breadcrumbs and cook for a few minutes. In the meanwhile, drain your Bucatini “al dente” and stir them into the sauce and sautè for a few minutes. The best way to taste this dish is by flavoring it with grated pecorino, a sprinkling of pepper and chopped parsley.
