Fagoli al Pomodoro (Beans and Tomato)

It was cold. It was nearly lunchtime. What was in the pantry? Well, crushed tomatoes and tinned beans. I have herbs growing of course, so this was a simple quick lunch, best served on a cold wet day. A little bit Italian I think...thus the title. Simple good food, cooked without fuss and just very delicious.

It hit the spot. (And then doubled down as dinner for my kids!) #cookonceeattwice is real!

Taste for seasoning, the anchovies normally mean you don't need salt, but it will depend on the anchovies you used. Serve hot with plenty of crunchy toasted sourdough!
