The mild, wheaty taste of pasta is a great backdrop for super-sized flavors. This recipe is a delicious combination of contrasts. The sweetness of deeply caramelized onions is balanced by salty, umami-packed anchovies (fish sauce is a good substitute) and funky pecorino Romano cheese (Parmesan is great, too). A splash of vinegar brings brightness and chives (or scallions) offer color and herbal freshness. We cook the pasta in a scant amount of water—only 3 quarts—then use some of the extra-starchy liquid to build sauciness in the dish.
