  • About

Originally from the Isle of Ischia, this is a Roman spaghetti salad


  • 675 g/ lb spaghetti
  • 3 plump cloves of garlic, crushed


Cook the garlic gently in the oil until golden. Add the mint and take off the heat. Pour in the orange juice. Chop the olives and anchovies roughly and stir into the pan, then add the mushrooms. Season with salt and mix all together.

Cook the spaghetti in lots of boiling water, keeping them slightly more al dente than usual. Drain and pour on to a large platter. Mix in the sauce
