Description

Sardine pasta is one of the easiest, most satisfying, yet commonly underrated pasta dishes out there. The umami and salinity from the sardines adds a depth of flavor that compliments pasta extremely well. As an added bonus, canned sardines are shelf stable. That means sardines are easily stored in the pantry, making them an excellent candidate for an easy weeknight dinner when you don’t have time to go grocery shopping…

Variations

Sardines: Sardines can be enjoyed in all of your favorite pasta dishes. Like capers, sardines have a salty tang that can perk up a pasta sauce. Add them to puttanesca pasta, vodka sauce, or your favorite alfredo for an added depth of flavor.

Noodles: When it comes to noodles, just about anything works well in this dish. Whole wheat pasta, fettuccine, macaroni, or even a low-carb version like zoodles (zucchini noodles) an work.

Spice it up: Add red pepper flakes, chili flakes, or a dash of cayenne to make it a more puttanesca-style sauce. Make it creamy: Consider adding heavy cream or coconut cream to make it a creamy-style sauce.

Top it a variety of ways: Add diced tomatoes and caramelized yellow onion to make a more Sicilian pasta sauce, top with roasted pine nuts, or add some grated parmesan cheese to your recipe.
