    Serves: 4 

    • 230g dry fettuccine pasta
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 1 medium yellow onion, chopped
    • 3 cloves garlic, crushed
    • 1 lemon, juiced
    • 1 (110g) can sardines in tomato sauce
    • 1 pinch red chiili flakes, or to taste
    • 1/4 cup (20g) freshly grated Parmesan cheese

    Prep:5min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:25min 

    1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta, and cook for about 8 minutes, or until almost tender.
    2. While the pasta is cooking, heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the onion, and cook for a few minutes until soft, then add the garlic, and cook until fragrant. Stir in the sardines with their sauce. When the sardines heat through, reduce heat to low, and simmer until the pasta is ready.
    3. When the pasta is almost done, drain, and add it to the sardine sauce. Stir, cover, and turn the heat off. Let stand for a few minutes to absorb the flavors of the sauce. Squeeze juice from the lemon over the pasta. Divide onto serving plates, and top with red chilli flakes and grated Parmesan cheese.

    I used 4 cloves garlic and sardines in olive oil (drained), and 4 TB tomato and basil pasta sauce. My husband (who is not a fish fan) absolutely loved it! I loved not only the taste, but it was very quick to prepare!  -  10 Feb 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    If you're looking for an easy,cheap, but unusual meal, this is it!(...if you like sardines) I altered the recipe to use what I had on hand. Instead of the sardines in tomato sauce, I added sardines in olive oil ,one small tomato, 2 t of tomato sauce, and a splash of red wine.I cooked less pasta to serve two, so it was probably a lot more "sardiney" than the original recipe. I'll definately make it again!  -  22 Apr 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
