Tasty Spaghetti with Anchovies, and Capers, is an easy recipe for busy weeknights. It is easy to make and full of delicious flavors from the anchovies and the capers.

Before you dismiss the idea of adding anchovies to your pasta, I have a wonderful cooking tip for you! Anchovies Fillets have been getting somewhat of a bad rap simply because when people think of fish, they automatically associated it with a bad smell or odor. It is the contrary! What may surprise you, is that when Anchovies Fillets are added to cooked dishes, they melt and leave the dish with a salty, spicy, lightly smoky flavor that is so wonderful that you will forget it is even there. My Spaghetti Anchovies, Capers Spaghetti recipe, is so simple that you will be surprised at the result.

My Spaghetti with Anchovies and Capers recipe is made with spaghetti noodles, anchovies, capers, tomatoes, marinara sauce, and spices.
