Linguini with Sardines
One of the first things that you think about pasta is … italy. Well, yeah you are right it is not really greek food to be honest but… who cares? Adding sardines and capers give pasta a proper meditterenean and greek flavor.
I love pasta to be honest as it is easy to make and the basic ingredient that you can mix wii a variety of ingredients.
Capers are my favourite but sardines? I rarely use them… which I regret.Sardines are incredible healthy and really tasty which it makes you wonder why we don’t use them more in our every day diet.
