Cook spaghetti in salted water to manufacturers instructions. Save some of the left over starchy water.
While pasta cooking, roughly chop anchovies and slice through whole cross section of roast garlic close to the nut and squeeze the soft garlic out of the skin and crush with the back of a knife.
Warm up 1/2 of the whole roast crushed garlic with the fresh garlic, anchovies, red chilli if you want it and a little vegetable oil in a large frying pan or saucepan for a couple of minutes.
Then fold in the cooked spaghetti, egg yolk if you want it and loosen with a little bit of the saved starchy water.
Season to taste with the lemon juice and sea salt.
Plate up the pasta, top with the Parmesan and black pepper to taste. Drizzle a little first press rapeseed and serve.
