Sardine pasta is a quick and easy dish you can prepare in minutes. For this recipe we used Spanish sardines in tomato sauce, but you may also try Spanish sardines in olive oil. Both of which can be bought in most supermarkets.
200g fusilli pasta
1 bottle Spanish sardines in tomato sauce
1 red bell pepper, cut into strips
1 green bell pepper, cut into strips
6 cloves garlic, minced
1 medium sized white onion, chopped
3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
Juice of half a lemon
A handful of parsley, chopped
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
Cook the pasta in a pot of salted boiling water according to package instructions or until al dente. Drain completely and transfer it to a large mixing bowl.
Heat one fourth of the oil in a medium sized saucepan over medium heat. Sauté the garlic and onions for two to three minutes or until the garlic is lightly browned and the onions are translucent. Add the bell peppers and cook it for five minutes or until the bell peppers are soft. Add the sardines in the pan. Break the sardines in pieces. Season it with salt and pepper. Mix well.
Add the sardine mixture to the pasta along with the oil and the lemon juice. Toss until well combined. Add more salt and pepper of desired. Garnish with parsley before serving.
