The method

Chop the broccoli into small florets, reserve the stalks and cut into small chunks, slice the garlic cloves.

2

Bring a pot of water to the boil and cook the pasta until al dente.

3

Over a medium heat, pour the oil from the anchovy tin into the pan. Once hot, add in chopped broccoli stalks, garlic and anchovies, breaking them up with a spoon as they cook.

4
