    A different take on spaghetti that DH and I really enjoyed. I did roast the tomatoes a bit longer than the recipe called for. Quick, easy, delicious meal. Can't wait to try this with end-of-summer cherry tomatoes.

    Delicious--great recipe for the last of the season's tomatoes--loved the addition of the anchovies and balsamic vinegar to the sauce

    My family loved this meal. Instead of pork, I used ground turkey. Still really good. The mint/pea pesto was really good, just super garlicky. My 5 year old thought it was too spicy with all the raw garlic. But my 7 year old loved it! The pasta was a hit with them as well.

    I made this tonight with the last of my cherry tomatoes from the garden and fresh basil. I didn't change a thing and I was blown away by how good this recipe is. It will definitely be added to my rotation. I don't usually use anchovies but decided to keep them in the recipe and boy am I glad I did- couldn't imagine the recipe without them.

    Okay, but I wouldn't make again. The pork and anchovies had me expecting the unctuous creaminess of a bolognese sauce, but it wasn't there, even though I added a bit of half and half at the end. Mostly, it's way too much vinegar. Really wish I'd gone a tsp. at a time.

    Very tasty dish! A definite keeper! I used a 16 oz package of ground pork so I doubled the recipe except the salt. I am quite glad that I didn't double the salt because with the anchovies, this dish is salty enough. I used fresh linguine...I boiled 2-9 oz packages and only ended up using about half. So next time, I will only boil 1-9 oz package of fresh linguine. Everything else is perfect as is except I did add a modest amount of salt and olive oil to the pasta when cooking and I would do that again next time.

    Great recipe that packs a punch of unique flavors.

    This was absolutely fantastic. The anchovies add a ton of delicious flavor to the meat sauce. Next time I'd probably roast the tomatoes a little longer so they break down better into the sauce. They still were juicy and tasty. This is a keeper for sure!
