One of the very first recipes I shared almost 7 years ago was a version of this basic sauce for pasta. I forgot to add anchovies then and was reminded by a number of readers. Today's offering rectifies that error.
Only some of the ingredients for this are available at your local farmers' market this time of year, but you can find most of the other needed ingredients in the non-processed food parts of your grocery store. At least you can find onions, garlic, herbs, and parsley where Michael Pollan suggests shopping - on the edge of the store. I served this over a whole wheat pasta.
Meanwhile, cook the pasta in the large pot of water you remembered to bring to a boil before you started the sauce. Drain. Serve with the delicious pasta sauce.
