About this recipe: A lovely Italian pasta dish with a fresh summer taste. Bucatini is like spaghetti, except with a hole running through the centre - making it like a long tube. You'll love the sweetness of the courgette and tomatoes that contrasts nicely with the saltiness of the anchovies.
I was bummed by this recipe. I made the vegetable/shrimp mixture while my pasta was boiling, and it smelled and tasted so yummy! Then I added a full pound of pasta, and it was way too much. I strongly recommend only using 8 oz of pasta. I love this idea, though! - 17 Nov 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I really liked this.... for both the flavor and the ease and speed of the preparation. I love onions and use them in pretty much everything, so I added about 1/3 cup of chopped onion (when I added the anchovy). I also used a can of fire-roasted tomatoes and used 8 oz of whole wheat thin spaghetti, as there would be way too much pasta if you add a whole box. I think I will add some fresh mushrooms next time as well. Thanks for the great recipe! - 09 Sep 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This was a delicious dish. I didn't have anchovies, so I in place of that salty item, I used chopped green olives. They played nicely with the flavors! I also used a can of diced tomatoes in place of the fresh and it worked out really well. Thanks! - 14 Jul 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
