It's 6pm. You've just come in the door from work. You need to get dinner on the table but the veg in your fridge is sad or nonexistent.
Pantry Pasta to the rescue!
500g Pasta of choice.
(I've used Wholemeal Penne this time, but Spaghetti, Spirals or any pasta works well)
¼ cup Olive oil
2-3 tsp Italian Herbs
1 tsp Garlic Powder
1 tbs Balsamic or White Wine Vinegar (or lemon juice)
1 tsp Chilli Flakes
1-2 tbs Nutritional Yeast
Salt and Pepper to taste
4-6 Anchovy Fillets, broken up
Parmesan to serve
When pasta is al dente, reserve a cup of the pasta water, then drain pasta and add to serving bowl. Add a splash of cooking water. With 2 forks, tumble the pasta and sauce together so the pasta is well coated. Add more olive oil and cooking water if necessary.
Top with a generous grind of pepper, and parmesan if you wish.
