Sardine Pasta With Spinach, Black Olives & Cherry Tomatoes

This is the easiest pasta dish I’ve ever tried and you can cook it in less than 5 minutes ( given that you have all the ingredients and excluding time you cook the pasta). Since I am a pasta lover, what I do is I always cook some pasta in advance and store them in the refrigerator. You can also keep a jar of parmesan or shredded cheese in your ref. Cooked pasta can be stored from 3-4 days while cheese life can range for a month or so.


a can of your favorite tomato sardines, choose one with chili if you like it spicy
a bunch of spinach, wash and pat dry the leaves
1 medium red onion, minced
10-15 pcs black olives
dried basil leaves
cherry tomatoes (sliced in half)
(Contadina) olive oil for sauteeing
200 grams of pasta (penne or spaghetti, cooked according to packaging instructions)


  1. Saute onion, spinach, black olives, and tomatoes in olive oil.
  2. Mix in sardines and season with salt and pepper for a minute or two.
  3. Top cooked sardines on pasta.
  4. Sprinkle with basil leaves and parmesan (optional, it tastes good even without cheese).
