I make this simple and delicious spaghetti dinner when I am home alone. It uses canned sardines and fresh tomatoes. It's great for a quiet night alone with a good book and a glass of red wine!

Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add the spaghetti, and cook until al dente, or 8 to 10 minutes. Drain, and rinse under cold water. Toss with a drizzle of olive oil, cover, and keep warm.
  2. Place 2 tablespoons olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in the onion, and cook until soft and transparent, about 5 minutes. Add the sardines; cook and stir 5 to 8 minutes until the sardines start to break apart. Mix in the tomatoes, and cook until mixture is heated through. Stir in the bread crumbs. Serve over spaghetti, and top with desired amount of grated Parmesan cheese.

I originally made this sauce according to the recipe, but after finishing the sauce, decided it needed more tomato and less sardine flavor. I ended up adding a can of fire roasted tomatoes and a can of tomato paste and it helped dilute the fishy flavor. I'm glad that I didn't omit the sardines, because they do add something to the sauce, they just needed to be diluted a bit.

I think 1/3 cup bread crumbs is too much. You only need enough to thicken the mixture to taste. I added a smashed clove of garlic to the cooked onions. Nice easy recipe -I'll definitely make this again. The recipe does not indicate when to add the pepper flakes, so I added them with the tomato.

I used 1 drained can petite tomato, about 6 cherry tomato cut up, 1 TBS. Time Savor Gourmet Viva Italian spice, 1 TBS Time Savor Gourmet Garlic Gusto Spice. I liked it but the hubby doesn't like fish.
