May 28th, 2012 § 0 comments

It’s been a long time since my last post.
I’ve been too busy lately, well, no, maybe it’s an excuse for being lazy…

I haven’t done much cooking, and I haven’t played much with my cat (sorry, Mika).

I shouldn’t forget what I like to do.


— Spaghetti with Sardines & Lemon (serves 2) — 

160g spaghetti

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 clove garlic, finely chopped

1 tin sardines in olive oil

Salt and black pepper

1 lemon zest (grated)

1 tablespoon parsley, finely chopped


Add the spaghetti to lightly salted boiling water, cook until al dente (keep 2 tablespoons of pasta water).

Heat the olive oil and fry the garlic in a large frying-pan over medium heat, until the garlic becomes lightly golden. Add the sardine, sauté until sardines are golden. Season with salt and black pepper

Add the cooked spaghetti and 2 tablespoons of pasta water in the frying-pan, toss well.  Sprinkle with the grated lemon zest and chopped parsley.
