In a small bowl, stir together the mayonnaise through the Worcestershire sauce.
Toss half of the dressing with the pasta and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Mix in remaining ingredients including the remaining dressing and serve.
I like to mix half of the dressing with the pasta and chill it and then mix in the remaining dressing just before serving, but you can do it all at once.
Be sure to salt your cooking water for the pasta well, at least 1 tablespoon of salt.
Anchovies can be omitted. You might want to double the Worcestershire sauce if you do.
