Pasta with Tomatoes and Anchovy Butter

Pasta with Tomatoes and Anchovy Butter
​Spaghetti in a tomato butter sauce! It’s amazing how 1 simple ingredient can elevate the flavors of a dish you always make!  This is a great quick weeknight dish that can be made in under 30 minutes.  In this dish, I added some anchovies to the butter until it cooked fully into the sauce and it was so amazing.  Although I make this dish all the time without the anchovies, after trying it this way, I think I may stick to this version ️. My kiddos (and I) where skeptical at first but everyone really enjoyed it!
