Food Trip Friday: Spaghetti with Sardines and Crab Sauce

I’m not really in a mood to blog hence the sporadic posts but I’m always in the mood to eat lol! So don’t be surprised, even in my blogging laziness, I still have to drop a post about food.

Here’s what I made last Tuesday. I {again..} forgot to go to the grocery so we didn’t have anything much to cook. When I asked the little one what she wants for dinner, she said {no, she actually shrieked!}, PASTA!  Opps, what’s in the cupboard?

We had two cans of sardines in tomato sauce, thank goodness there was about 500 grams of spaghetti,a few crab sticks and some cheese. So I whipped this easy to cook sardine and crabmeat spaghetti.

Crab Meat and Sardine Pasta

Flake the sardines first, then heat olive oil, throw in some minced garlic, once its starting to smell really good, add in the sardines and the crab meat. Season with salt, sugar, pepper and oregano. Serve hot with cooked spaghetti, sprinkle with grated cheese. Cooks fast and easy on the budget too =)

      @Luna, yes she did. but the odds were on my side coz kiddo loves seafoods. she rarely eats meat and prefers fish, shrimps and crabs. She even asked me if she could bring some to school =)

    I am a bit adventurous when it comes to pasta but I have to say I’ve never tried it with sardines!

      masarap sya sis.. and if you’re bothered by sardines smell, the oregano and the olive oil somehow offsets it =)
