Directions

Cook the penne in a pot of boiling salted water. While the pasta is cooking, make the sauce.

To make the sauce: In a saucepan heat up the olive oil. Gently saute the garlic, add the chile peppers, and anchovies. Cook until the garlic is golden and anchovies have somewhat dissolved. Then add the chopped chocolate. When the chocolate has completely melted, stir in the bread crumbs.

Drain the pasta just before the 'al dente' stage and add to the saucepan. Add the chopped parsley and mix well for a few seconds so that the pasta and the sauce are well amalgamated or combined. Serve the dish immediately.

    Great idea, but I may have cooked the chocolate too much. It was bitter and not fishy enough for me. I will not try again.

    I really liked it; it was chocolate-ly, salty, crunchy, and satisfying.
    I can understand some people may not like this because of subtle but undeniable taste of anchovy, but that taste made this dish meal to me.
    Only different thing I did from the recipe is that I kept the heat very low while I was making the sauce, so that the chocolate won't burn once it hits the pan. I warmed up the oil with garlic and chili from the moment I put the past in the pot. When the past was ready, I put chocolate and bread crumbs in the sauce and mixed the sauce with pasta. I thought the dish turned out really well.

    Better as an appetizer. Way too much chocolate in this dish.
