For this weekend I though about a very simple and quick recipe to prepare (5 mins), but so much tasty, the Spaghetti with Anchovies in oil and cherry tomatoes!
Ingredients (for 2 people):
100g of cherry tomatoes (3.53 oz)
2 cloves of garlic
Extra virgin olive oil
6 anchovies in oil
Heat the olive oil in a pan and then put the two cloves of peeled garlic to fry.
Meanwhile, wash and dry the tomatoes and cut them in half.
Put the six anchovies in oil in the pan and “mash” them until they are “dissolved” in the oil.
Remove the two cloves of garlic from the pan and add the chopped cherry tomatoes.
Let the cherry tomatoes cook for 5 minutes over high heat till they seem as in figure below.
Serve the sauce on spaghetti: well, we’ve done!
It’s better not to keep or store this sauce in the refrigerator: prepare it directly with the right doses!
And the wine?
For the Spaghetti with anchovies in oil and cherry tomatoes, I chose a simple wine, the Beaujolais Nouveau 2014 by George Deboeuf.
This wine is rather rounded and it has good alcohol percentage, good intensity and delicate tannin: this means that it matches the intensity of the flavor of the anchovies, the oily sensation and the cherry tomato, a tough ingredient in pairing food and wine!
At the nose, intense perfumes of ripe banana and ripe strawberries.
If you can not find it, I recommend other Beaujolais Nouveau or rosé wines with the same characteristics mentioned above. If you opt for a white, I recommend one who has a good persistence and intensity.
And now, enjoy!
