Preparation

This simple dish has been dedicated to the great actor Totò by his daughter Liliana. This simple dish had been suggested by a working class man, and expresses the essence of Neapolitan spirit, which the actor took to the screen and on the stage so many times.

 

Rub the bread slices with garlic, then crumble them on a plate. In a pan, sauté the crumbled bread with two tbsp oil, two whole garlic cloves, making sure that the garlic does not brown too much.

 

In another pan, pour the oil and the chopped anchovies and a pinch of oregano. Cook the spaghetti and drain al dente then pour into the pan with the anchovies, add the crunchy bread, a handful of basil torn by hand and stir.

 

Serve immediately.
