  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 2 chilli slices
  • 6 anchovy fillets in oil
  • extra virgin olive oil

Fill a very large pot with water, which can also contain the pasta: bring the water to the boil, add the coarse salt and then put in the orecchiette and turnip tops. Cook the two ingredients together. In a large pan, in the meantime, put a little oil, the clove of garlic and the anchovies: cook the sautéed until the anchovies have melted, then add the two slices of red pepper.
