Pasta with Peppers, Anchovies and Pine Nuts

This was a delicious pasta dish, the anchovies really pack a punch and the peppers were a little bit spicy but not overly so. This doesn't look like much but it's really worth making.

Penne with a Peppers, Anchovies and Pine Nuts (from Waitrose Weekend)
(Serves 2)

100g dried pasta shapes
1 tbsp olive oil
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
4 anchovy fillets, chopped
2 pimiento red peppers, drained and sliced
15g pine nuts
1 tbsp chopped fresh oregano
finely grated Parmesan

Bring a pan of water to the boil, add the pasta and cook according to packet instructions.

While the pasta is cooking, heat the oil in a frying pan and add the garlic. Cook for 30 secs or until golden then add the anchovies and mash down into the oil. Add the peppers and cook for several mins until heated through. Stir in the pine nuts, oregano and season,

Drain the pasta and toss in the pepper sauce. Serve sprinkled with Parmesan.
