Linguini with Cabbage and Anchovies

Linguini with Cabbage and Anchovie

Do you often wonder what to do with leftover cabbage after using just a piece of the usual huge heads? One whole cabbage can last such a long time. I use leftovers for slow, pot au feu, gyoza (pot stickers), yakisoba and I usually still have some left over. So I made this super easy pasta dish for lunch to finish off the last bit of cabbage. Because cabbage fills you up, you don't need much pasta. It's great for your diet if you are watching your carbs.

Yield: 1 serving (generous portion)


  • 150 g Cabbage
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 garlic ..... thinly slice
  • Pinch red chili flakes
  • 2-3 strips canned anchovy fillet
  • 70 g/2.5 oz linguini
  • salt and pepper to taste

Cooking Directions

  1. Wash the cabbage and cut it into thin strips.


  2. Boil water in a large pot. Add some salt in the water and cook the linguini. Set a timer to four minutes earlier than the suggested cooking time for the pasta.

  3. Meanwhile, heat a fry pan in medium heat with oil. Add garlic, chili flakes, and anchovies in a pan and cook slowly without burning them for 4-5 minutes. When the anchovies are melted, it is ready.
