"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!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

dry spaghetti or capellini
1 (4 ounce) can
rolled sardines with capers
fresh tomato, chopped
crushed red pepper flakes
Italian bread crumbs
grated Parmesan cheese to taste, for serving
I originally made this sauce according to the recipe, but after finishing the sauce, decided it needed more tomato and less sardine flavor.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.
Nice taste but way too dry. Next time I'll skip the breadcrumbs entirely and maybe add a bit of Italian seasoning to compensate. I used ramen noodles instead of spaghetti. Per other suggestions, I may add more tomato as well.
