Big Joe’s Anchovy Pasta [Recipe]

As we give away Bon Jovi tickets this weekend, I thought it would be great to share this delightfully simple, yet incredibly tasty recipe from my good friend Bobby Bandiera.

As you all know, I have a passion for food and a passion for music. The two go hand in hand with me. My friend Bobby, is a master of music and a very good cook.

His music resume looks like a who’s who of rock and roll. He’s a member of Bon Jovi’s band, has played with Bruce Springsteen many times, and has been a long time member of Southside Johnny and The Asbury Jukes.

He is one of the funniest guys I know with a wicked sense of humor. I really enjoy hanging out with Bobby and his beautiful wife, Tracy. There’s always great laughs, lots of fine wine, terrific food and of course, good music. Bobby gave me this recipe. It was one of his mom’s. Enjoy it with friends, good wine and great music!

You’ll need:

I lb. #8 pasta

5 cloves of garlic

4 tbls. Olive oil

3 cans anchovies

Parsley, finely chopped (optional)

How to put it together:

Pour oil into sauté pan, low heat. Add chopped garlic (fresh). Lightly brown garlic. Then add 3 cans of anchovies. Let anchovies dissipate. Pour over cooked pasta, and mix well. I like to add some fresh chopped parsley at the end, to give it a little color and brighten up the dish. Enjoy!

This recipe comes from Big Joe Henry’s Big Jersey Cookbook
