I find sometimes that it is hard to get a deep flavor when making pasta, because the noodles tend to dominate. By adding some of the water they were cooking in, it helps the flavors stick more to the noodles! Don’t be scared of the anchovies, they don’t taste like anchovies in this dish they just add a unique saltiness that you will enjoy!

Not everyone likes lamb, if you are one of those, feel free to substitute the lamb with regular beef or even turkey! I found spinach noodles in the organic section of the supermarket but if you want to use regular spaghetti or your favorite shape of pasta, do it!!

Cooking the tofu directly in the white wine creates a deep flavor that is both comforting yet subtle. I enjoy the flavors of white wine more than red wine in cooking because they are deep flavors but are not heavy! Feel free to replace chicken with the tofu!
