I don't know whether this is authentic or not but what I do know is that we loved it! For those who said the dish tasted fishy, make sure you buy a good brand of sardines like "Season." I found I didn't need nearly as much olive oil as called for and to brighten the flavor, I squeezed in the juice of a half of a lemon. So delish and thank you!!
Whatever this is, "Pasta con le Sarde" it ain't. Noodles with anchovies, perhaps, but the real Pasta con le Sarde is a dish with centuries of Sicilian heritage and deserves better.
Sorry - I could not eat this and I like sardines. This was way too fishy and wierd. Could not find any way to blend the flavors to my liking. Luckily, the ingredients were cheap, so it wasn't too big a loss. My boyfriend said, "I think there's a reason why sardines are not used more widely..." I'm sticking to the sardine as low-mercury tuna subsititute for dips and spreads. High in omega 3's, but not an especially versatile ingredient.
This recipe is great especially if you just want a quick, delicious and simple meal! Followed the instructions to the core, my husband loves it! Perhaps a little more sauce the next time :0)
Wow- I can't believe I just turned a plain old can of sardines into this blissful fishy extravaganza. I did eliminate the extra oil however and just sauteed the garlic in some oil from the can before adding the sardines. It's still plenty oily and flavorful and will save on a monster amount of fat and calories. Thank you for this!
If your not a true Sicilian you really can't appreciate this recipe.This is my favorite Italian dish. In my opinion my Mother made the best Pasta Con Sardine! And I'm sure your Mother made the best as well, the point is, its our Mother's recipe that throuh out the years carry the recipe from generation to generation>
wow i just made this tonight because i needed something quick, easy, and healthy. i have been trying to include more sardines in my diet since they're a good source of omega 3's and vitamin D - two things that Americans are normally very deficient in. i used homemade italian seasoned bread crumbs (that were very heavily seasoned) and didn't drain the sardines. delicious!!!!!
I made this recipe and will make it again and again.
