“Adding pasta water to the pan in this recipe creates a buttery sauce and extra Parmesan helps it to cling to the pasta. Always eat this piping hot.”  – Hannah Lewry


  • 250 g Woolworths chickpea pasta
  • 100 g butter
  • 6 anchovy fillets
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 t chilli flakes
  • 10 g sage
  • 250 g Tenderstem broccoli, blanched
  • 50 g roasted salted almonds, chopped
  • Parmesan, grated, for serving

Cooking Instructions

1. Cook the pasta until al dente, then drain, reserving one ladleful
of cooking water.

2. Melt the butter in a frying pan and add the anchovies. Using a wooden spoon, smash the anchovies so they almost dissolve in the butter.

3. Add the garlic, chilli and sage and fry for 1 minute. Add the pasta water and stir to emulsify.

4. Toss the pasta with the sauce in the pan. Serve with the broccoli, almonds and Parmesan.

Cook's note: Chickpea pasta is gluten free and has a slightly nutty flavour, making it a tasty alternative.
