Get Ready to Cook

2

cups

20 minutes

Tip

Don't bother chopping the anchovies before adding them to the skillet. The fillets are easily broken apart with a wooden spoon or silicone spatula as they cook.

Ingredients
  • 4

    tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided

  • 5
  • 5

    medium garlic cloves, minced

  • ½

    teaspoon red pepper flakes

  • 2

    pints grape tomatoes, 1 pint halved

  • 3

    tablespoons red wine vinegar

  • Kosher salt and ground black pepper

  • ¼

    cup chopped fresh basil

Step 1 of 2

Cook the tomatoes

2
 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
5
 anchovy fillets
5
medium garlic cloves, minced
½
teaspoon red pepper flakes
2
pints grape tomatoes, 1 pint halved

In a nonstick 12-inch skillet over medium, combine 2 tablespoons of oil, the anchovies and garlic. Cook, stirring occasionally and breaking up the anchovies, until the garlic is light golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes.


Stir in the pepper flakes and tomatoes, then cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until most of the whole tomatoes have burst, 5 to 7 minutes.

Step 2 of 2

Mash the tomatoes and season

3
tablespoons red wine vinegar
2
 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
Kosher salt and ground black pepper
¼
cup chopped fresh basil

Use a fork or potato masher to gently mash the tomatoes. Off heat, stir in the vinegar and remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil. Taste and season with salt and pepper. Stir in the basil.
