Super flavourful, comforting, and loved by all ages: this Spicy Sardine Pasta has it all! The spicy sardines add the right amount of heat while balancing out the pasta sauce. Serve with some toasted baguettes and anchovy butter for the ultimate Millionnaires feast!


  • 400g long pasta (spaghetti, linguine, bucatini)
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp butter

  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • Pecorino, grated to garnish

  3. Add garlic, chili flakes and cook until fragrant, 8-10 minutes.
  4. Add the sardines to the pan with some of the oil, break apart with a spoon and toss to combine.
  5. Add the pasta to the pan. Toss while slowly adding pasta water. Season with salt and pepper.
  6. Plate and garnish with lemon zest, pecorino, breadcrumbs and parsley.
