Pasta de Sardine Ingredients :
- 8 ounces dry fettuccine pasta
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 medium yellow onion, chopped
- 3 cloves garlic, crushed
- 1 medium lemon, juiced
- 1 (3.75 ounce) can sardines in tomato sauce
- ¼ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
- 1 pinch red pepper flakes, or to taste
How To Make Pasta de Sardine
Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil. Cook fettuccine at a boil until almost tender, about 8 minutes.
While the pasta is cooking, heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add onion and cook until starting to soften, about 3 minutes. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Pour in sardines and tomato sauce, stir to combine, and cook until heated through, about 3 minutes. Reduce the heat to low and keep at a simmer.
Drain pasta, add to sauce, and stir to combine. Cover, turn off the heat, and let stand for 3 minutes. Squeeze lemon over top and divide onto four serving plates. Garnish with Parmesan and red pepper flakes.
