> 1 lb penne pasta
> 1/2 (16 oz) pkg frozen broccoli florets, thawed
> 1 1/2 cups frozen peas
> 3 cloves garlic
> 1 (2 oz) can anchovy fillets in olive oil (do not drain)
> 3/4 cup Italian-style panko bread crumbs
> 1/2 oz shaved Parmesan (optional)


Cook the penne according to package directions. Add the broccoli and peas to the boiling water for the last 2 min. Drain in a colander. Finely chop the garlic.
Meanwhile, to a 12-inch skillet, add the anchovies and their oil. Cook on medium-high 3 min., mashing anchovies with a spatula into a paste. Add garlic and cook 1 min., stirring often. Add the bread crumbs. Cook 2 min., until crumbs are golden, stirring constantly.
Add penne and vegetables to the skillet and toss until well combined. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve with the Parmesan, if desired.
