Half a pound of meat per person seems like a lot but it shrinks considerably when pounded and sautéed and just doesn’t look like much. The sauce sounds very rich, but the richness is cut by lemon zest. You can increase the amount of pasta if you want to stay with a smaller meat portion. You may also omit the anchovy, but the sauce will not have that wonderful subtle flavor that only anchovy can impart.
Char the peppers over an open flame or under the broiler until blackened on all sides. Transfer to a plastic container with a lid or a paper or plastic bag. Cover the container or close the bag and let the peppers steam about 15 minutes. Peel the skins from the peppers; then cut the peppers in half, remove the stems, and scrape out the seeds. Cut into ⅓-inch-wide strips.
