Radicchio Anchovy Braise

Best side dish I’ve made in a while. Serves 2.

In a non-stick fry pan, heat oil from jar of Sicilian anchovies. Add wedges of a fresh radicchio and brown. Add 6-7 of the Sicilian anchovy fillets from the jar, minced. Pour in 1/2 cup chicken broth, bring to boil. Cover and simmer for 8 minutes.

Add another cup chicken broth and 1 cup fresh pasta. Cover and boil 2-3 minutes. Stir to make sure pasta is separated. When pasta is cooked and tender, uncover and heat for another 2 minutes. Serve pasta and braised radicchio and broth in large bowls.

Drizzle with balsamic vinegar. Garnish with anchovy fillets to taste and grated parmesan/romano cheese. Should be brothy and anchovy taste subtle.
