Delightful Grilled Sardine pasta Recipe
Sardine recipes can be difficult to make but grilled sardine pasta is easy to cook and tastes great.
This is such a simple yet beautiful dish. Sardine recipes always start by adding the olive oil to a medium frying pan over a low heat. Add the garlic and capers, cook for 30 seconds before adding the tinned tomatoes, chilli flakes, sugar and half of the basil. Let this cook for 5 minutes then season with a little salt and milled pepper.
Meanwhile cook the pasta, drain and keep a little of the pasta water if the sauce becomes too thick just simply add a tablespoon of the pasta water to thin the sauce out.
To finish the dish off, add the chopped olives to the sauce with the shelled broad beans and cook for 2 to 3minutes. Finally add the sardines and remaining basil, gently stir in the cooked pasta and serve.
The great thing about sardine recipes is that they can be customised to your preferences. Try different spices and herbs to really bring out the flavour.
