Pasta with Preserved Lemon and Anchovies
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook until slightly less than al dente, about 2 minutes less than package directions. Reserve 1 cup pasta water, then drain.Advertisement
Meanwhile, heat oil in a large straight-sided skillet over medium-high. Add garlic and anchovies and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add preserved lemon; cook 30 seconds. Add pasta and 3/4 cup pasta water; cook, stirring and shaking pan, until pasta is cooked, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from heat; add parsley and cheese and continue stirring and shaking pan, adding more pasta water as necessary to create a creamy sauce. Season with salt and pepper and serve with more cheese, pepper, and parsley leaves, and a drizzle of oil.
