Imagine what the salty tang of anchovies does for Caesar salad, and you'll understand the draw of this classic Italian combination. Try it alongside a holiday roast or pasta dish.

Serves 6


+ Add To Shopping List
1 1/2 pounds broccolini, stalks split if needed to make them 1/2 to 3/4 in. wide (tops can be wider)
6 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper, divided
4 large garlic cloves, thinly sliced
6 to 8 canned anchovy fillets, chopped
Lemon wedges (optional)


Total: 35 Minutes

1. Preheat oven to 425°. Trim leaves from broccolini if you like (for a tidier look). Put broccolini on 2 large rimmed baking sheets.

2. Combine 3 tbsp. oil with the salt and 1/4 tsp. pepper. Drizzle over broccolini and turn until well coated. Roast, switching pan positions and turning broccolini with tongs halfway through cooking, until browned at edges, about 15 minutes.

3. Meanwhile, heat remaining 3 tbsp. oil and 1/4 tsp. pepper with the garlic and anchovies in a 12-in. frying pan over medium-low heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until garlic is soft but not browned (reduce heat if needed), 12 to 15 minutes.

4. Toss broccolini with anchovy mixture in frying pan. Serve with lemon wedges to squeeze on top if you like.
