Pantry Pasta with Calabrian Chiles + Breadcrumbs is the type of recipe I turn to when I don't want to go grocery shopping because I always have these staples on hand. Despite a humble ingredient list, this dish takes olive oil, anchovies, tomato paste, and Calabrian chiles to create a savory, spicy pasta you won't be able to stop eating. I layer flavor by practically caramelizing everything that goes into the sauce, and two ingredients in particular here add a major punch of flavor – tomato paste and anchovies. Calabrian chiles add heat and a subtle fruitiness I can't get enough of. Bring it all together with fresh herbs and crispy breadcrumbs.\
Since this recipe relies on few ingredients for major flavor I swear by a few products. I lean on good quality extra virgin olive oil in my kitchen, and I'm excited that I was able to collaborate with my friends at Graza for this recipe. I *love* their Sizzle and Drizzle extra virgin olive oils! In addition to Graza extra virgin olive oil, I love using Agostina Recca Anchovies and Tutto Calabria Calabrian Chili Paste.
