Preparing the Dish

Add the garlic to the olive oil in a large skillet. Saute for 1-2 minutes over medium heat, then add the anchovies.  Crush the anchovies with the tines of  fork and incorporate them into the garlic and oil mixture.  Add the oregano, and the tarragon and cook for another 1/2 minute or so.   Add the chicken broth and white wine to the oil and garlic mixture.  Heat to boiling for 4-5 minutes to reduce the sauce a bit. Add the tomatoes and cook for another 5 minutes.

Cook the pasta in plenty of water until it is very al dente. Drain and add the pasta to the sauce.  Toss constantly over high heat for 1-2 minutes.
