How To Make Amalfi Lemon, Chilli & Anchovy Spaghetti

A zesty and spicy pasta dish with the tangy flavors of Amalfi lemons, the heat of chillies, and the umami richness of anchovies.

Preparation: 10 minutes
Cooking: 15 minutes
Total: 25 minutes



  • 350g spaghetti
  • 2 Amalfi lemons
  • 2 red chillies
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 4 anchovy fillets
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • Grated Parmesan cheese for serving
