Fusilli Cauliflower - Broccoli con Anchovy

I love this recipe as it reminds me of my mother cooking in the upstairs of our apartment building, we would always hear the neighbors from the surrounding units hollering to see if they could come for dinner - “posso unirmi a voi per la cena?” Throughout Roma and the surrounding countryside, there is a special pride with what family recipes can be done using the cabbage plant.
