Don’t hold the anchovies when it comes to your dietary choices! Although few people are indifferent about them (a true love it or hate it food), a one ounce serving provides 154 mg of Potassium, 66 mg of Calcium, 1.31 mg of iron, plus 11 essential vitamins and minerals.
While anchovies may be best known as a pizza topping, there are many ways that you can use them in recipes. One of the most popular is Puttanesca Sauce, an Italian favorite. A blend of olive oil, onion, garlic, plum tomatoes, Kalamata olives, capers, anchovies, basil, and red pepper flakes, Puttanesca Sauce is traditionally served atop penne pasta.
