Pasta with Shrimp, Anchovies and Tomatoes (Ultimate Cooking Course)

Pasta with Shrimp, Anchovies and Tomatoes

My First Recipe from Gordon Ramsay's Ultimate Cookery Course, he used spaghetti and did not include shrimp, but i am a seafood lover, and frankly i love seeing a bit of protein in my food. I used whole wheat fettuccine in mine to make it healthier, tasted amazing still.... i also omitted the olives, because i am not a big fan. This would make for a good vegetarian healthy meal if the shrimp is omitted. 

Pasta with Shrimp, Anchovies and Tomatoes (serves 1)
100g of Fettuccine
Olive oil
2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
1 dried red chilli, finely chopped
5 medium-large size shrip, deshelled and deveined
Quarter of a 50g anchovies tin, drain and chopped
Quarter of a larger yellow bell pepper(seeded and sliced thinly.. added this mostly for color :))
1 tbsp of capers, drained and rinsed
100g of cherry tomatoes, halved

  1. Cook the pasta until al dente according to instructions on package
  2. Heat a frying pan with the olive oil and fry the garlic and anchovies for 1-2 minutes on medium heat until the anchovies start to melt into oil and the garlic is fragant
  3. Add shrimp and other ingredients, and cook for 5 minutes, remember to turn shrimp halfway through so both sides can be cooked 
  4. Drain pasta and toss with sauce until all strands are coated with sauce
    Note that anchovies are really salty so you may not need to add any salt, taste to confirm and adjust seasoning
