Gemelli with Anchovies, Tomatoes and Mascarpone

by . Featured in AT MY TABLE

Introduction

Quick, simple and – much as I hate the word – tasty. I know no self-respecting Italian would let tomato seeds sully a sauce, but I do so very happily, and it’s the gloop inside the halved cherry tomatoes that adds cohesion to the spicy, tangy creaminess.

  • This is amazing! Anyone who looks at it and thinks "eww anchovies" should just try it - they melt and disappear into the recipe entirely, just becoming a mouthwatering piquant glaze that coats every single iota of the pasta. It's unbelievably delicious!

  • I made this tonight to help ease me through a head cold. The flavor was amazing and the kick of heat from the chili was just what I needed. The vitamins from the tomatoes won't hurt either. Thanks, Nigella, for another wonderful series and recipe.

  • Utterly scrumptious. We got spoons out to finish the sauce off in the bowls, after we'd eaten all the pasta

  • Oh my word! This is delicious! I made a few slight adjustments for my palate ( I hope you don’t mind Nigella ) and I added a couple of squirts of tomato purée and a couple of teaspoons of brown sugar... this was such a hit with my family... thank you xx Jo xx
