Spaghetti with Anchovy Carbonara Recipe - Chris Cosentino Food & Wine
Since 1995, my husband's extended family has had a Thanksgiving tradition to vote on what to have for Thanksgiving dinner-either Italian food, Bagna cauda with Italian food as side dishes, or traditional food AKA turkey, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, sweet potatoes, stuffing, gravy, pumpkin pie, etc. The past two Thanksgivings we have had bagna cauda. Tonight, I made this AMAZING dish (see link above). No longer do I have to wait until Thanksgiving to get the bagna cauda taste.
FYI: Bagna cauda is Italian for "hot bath." It consists of olive oil, melted butter, anchovies, and garlic in a fondue pot. People gather around the pot dipping their vegetables into the "hot bath" and bringing it to their mouths to eat, while bread is held underneath to catch the drippings.
