Spaghetti is one of my comfort food — comfort in a way that I can eat it when I’m happy and I crave it when I’m sad. Comfort also in a way because it is very easy to make and you can put anything on/with it. One of my favorite spaghetti dish is this simple and easy-to-make spaghetti with spanish sardines. I am not good with measurements, so I won’t be able to provide them.
a bunch of spaghetti, cooked al dente
crushed and minced garlic (optional)
salt and pepper
How to: Cook the spaghetti according to package instructions. I add salt to the spaghetti while it’s cooking so that I won’t have to add salt to the sauce mixture. In a sauce pan, heat some olive oil, add the Spanish sardines with some of its oil, and the garlic. Cook for a little while, about 3-4 minutes. Add the spaghetti, cook for 1 minute. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer to serving dish. Add Parmesan cheese.
