01   Cook taglierini in boiling salted water until al dente, then drain.
02   Meanwhile, heat half the olive oil in a large frying pan, add garlic, chilli and anchovies and cook over medium-high heat for 30-40 seconds or until garlic is golden. Add squid and cook for another minute or just until squid is opaque, then add wine, bring to the boil, and cook for 30 seconds or until liquid is reduced to ¼ cup. Remove pan from heat, then add lemon rind and parsley and season to taste with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.
