Very cheap, tasty & nutritious pasta lunch/dinner. Even here in Queens in NYC, this makes a meal for four for less than $1.25 ($2.25 in Manhattan supermarkets).
- While the pasta is boiling away atop the stove, make the sauce -- it takes less than five minutes.
- Empty sardines into a pan atop the stove. Heat at medium. Crush the sardines into a sauce. Add in whole plum tomatoes and crush them into the sauce. Add oil and garlic. Boil up, add in spices to taste.
- Serve atop the pasta.
I thought this dish was okay, but my parents didn't like it, and I wound up eating most of it. It was strong-smelling and oily, though I added only half the amount of olive oil. I might make it again if I was on my own, but I'd only serve it to others if they were really in the mood for sardines.
