"Pronounced 'bun-yet,' this is an old world Italian recipe from my Nonie's kitchen. It is made using mainly parsley and garlic and is meant to be eaten with a crusty warm bread. It is almost sinful to share it's secret with the world but I know you'll love it as much as my family and I do. Refrigerate overnight for best flavor."

When I read this recipe I found it to be strange. I was very iffy about a dip/spread made with......FISH! But I will always try something new because my motto is: you won't know if you like it u...

I make this without the anchovies, which probably makes it a totally different dish, but we really like it. It is very garlicky, and great spread on rustic bread.
