  3. 3 scallions, thinly sliced
  4. 2 leeks, white and light green parts only, trimmed and thinly sliced
  5. 1 medium shallot, chopped
  6. 1 anchovy fillet, drained(optional)
  7. Pinch of crushed red pepper
  8. 1 pound wheat spaghetti, noodles broken in half
  9. 3 3/4 cups low sodium chicken stock
