    We really liked this. Was looking for a quick dinner and this hit the spot.

    I really liked this pasta dish, but surprisingly my partner liked it even more and he's not really a fish fan. Great balance of flavours, I added a little lemon juice to serve as well. Substituted dry vermouth for dry white wine as that's what I had. Agree with other comments that it may be ever nicer made with sunblushed tomatoes. I'll probably be repeating this, so will try that idea out.

    Have made this several times with leftover mascarpone, halve the anchovies so it’s more in the background & double the tomatoes, sometimes using diced roma tomatoes, different pasta shapes. Love this creamy quick sauce!

    Super delicious! Perfect for a weeknight. Taste from anchovies, not very much tomato taste, but just enough.

    This serves two so I made it for mine and son's supper. We enjoyed it but decided not enough to make again.

    This was okay but the sauce didn't have enough tomato flavor. I might try this again with canned, diced tomatoes to make more sauce.

    Delicious and simple - what more could you ask for in a Sunday evening dinner. Noting Astrid5555’s comment below I think you could make an as delicious version of this using a mix of roasted and sunblush or dried tomatoes. I was already thinking about this as Mr VT hates anchovies - he was even complaining as I cooked up the sauce.

    As promised quick and easy. While husband and I really enjoyed this dish, the kids did not like it at all because of the very strong anchovy taste.
