eg
data(warpbreaks)
LZ.aov <- summary(aov(breaks ~ wool + tension, data = warpbreaks))
as.data.frame(LZ.aov[[1]][,4:5])
F value      Pr(>F)
wool        3.339316 0.073613669
tension     7.536651 0.001377778
Residuals         NA          NA

This is for an aov() with a single response. The complicated structure is
because you can have multiple responses, which would give a list of anova
tables as the summary.
