1. In a large pot of lightly salted water brought to a boil blanch the broccoli stems for 1 minute, then add the florets and blanch until they are tender-crisp, approximately 3 minutes.
2. Into another large pot drain their blanching water, reserving to cook the pasta.
3. Cool the broccoli by plunging it in an ice bath or rinsing it under cold running water until it is cool, then drain and set aside
4. Return the cooking water to a boil, adding more water if necessary and add the pasta.
5. In a Dutch oven heat the olive oil over medium heat and saute garlic to the oil, stirring often, until it is soft and fragrant.
6. Add the anchovies and red pepper flakes and saute stirring constantly, for 2 minutes.
7. To the pot add wine and the 1/2 cup of pasta cooking water, simmer the ingredients, stirring constantly, until the anchovies are dissolved and add the blanched broccoli.
8. Drain the pasta once tender, drain it and add the broccoli and anchovies.
