    I am a garlic lover, but I would agree, this is a little heavy on the garlic. The garlic sharpness was useful, however, in offsetting the sweetness of the raisins. I thought the balance was good, but my six year old, who did not know about the raisins or any of my doubts about the recipe, immediately commented "pretty good pasta mom, but it is too sweet." I will repeat this anyway, not because it is outstanding, but because the effort to taste ratio is very favorable.

    Quick, no cook dinner. As suggested I substituted parmesan for the anchovies.

    How to make a delicious pasta meal with no effort at all! Next time I'd use less garlic and add a little pesto.

    Although my version looked nothing like the photo it tasted every bit as good as Nigella promised. Perfect for weekdays, the sauce is made in less time than the pasta takes to cook. The only change I made was to scatter some dried chilli on top.
